OPTIMIZATION MODELS AND ALGORITHMS FOR PROBLEMS IN THE HEALTHCARE FIELD

Public resources for healthcare are becoming more and more inadequate to meet the rapidly increasing demand. Health care providers must determine how to exploit the limited available resources in order to provide the most effective health care to citizens. My major research activity is focused on solving optimization problems pertaining to the healthcare field through methodologies typical of the Operations Research field. In particular, I deal mostly with scheduling problems, like the Operating Theater Scheduling Problem or the Ambulatory Scheduling Problem, and scarce resource problems.

 
AN ALGORITHM FOR THE MINIMAL HITTING SET PROBLEM

The computation of all the MHSs of a given collection of sets is important in order to perform several tasks, DNA analysis and model-based diagnosis among them. The aim of my minor research activity is to prove the correctness of a parallel exact algorithm to solve the problem, possibly to correct/improve the algorithm itself, to code such an algorithm, and to perform experiments based on a benchmark.
