Monica Gentili received her Ph.D. in Operations Research from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (Italy) in 2003. Dr. Gentili holds a Laurea degree in Statistics from Italy. Prior to joining the Speed School of Engineering at U of L, Dr. Gentili was Assistant Professor at University of Salerno (Italy) from 2005 and Visiting Assistant Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology from 2013 to 2015.
Dr. Gentili’s research expertise is combinatorial optimizations with particular emphasis on location/allocation problems and network flow optimization. Dr. Gentili’s main interest is the model and algorithm design for problems with application in traffic management and control, telecommunication networks and more recently in health care systems. In particular, her past and current research puts emphasis on the following topics: Models and Algorithms for Network Location, Network Flow Optimization Problems, Labeled Spanning Tree and Bounded-Degree Spanning Tree Problems and Wireless Sensor Networks I was awarded the bi-annual” UPS-SOLA Best Dissertation Award” (Section On Location Analysis) with her PhD Dissertation: New Models and Algorithms for the Location of Sensors on Traffic Networks. Dr. Gentili also collaborates on several international research projects on traffic modeling and location and have fruitful collaborations with many well-known international researchers. She has authored or co-authored several fully refereed articles in international journals and conference proceedings relative to network flow and location problems on networks.
- Network Location with application in Traffic Networks and Health Care
- Network Flow Optimization with Multiple Criteria and Time Windows
- Labeled Spanning Tree and Bounded-Degree Spanning Tree Problems
