About me

I am a PhD Research Scholar in the Department of Business and Management Science at NHH Norwegian School of Economics, and a member of the Centre for Shipping and Logistics. I received a master’s degree in Mathematical Engineering from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Brno University of Technology in 2016.

My research interests revolve around cooperation in operations research, from coalition formation through realization of the cooperation to distribution of associated costs or profits. My mathematical background allows me to connect theoretical results of cooperative game theory with practical problems faced by businesses.

Currently, I am working on my dissertation Essays on Cooperation in Transportation and Logistics under supervision of Mario Guajardo and Stein W. Wallace.
