Paolo Detti is associate professor in Operations Research at the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematical Sciences of the University of Siena.

Paolo Detti received the Ph.D. degree in Operations Research in 2000 from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (Italy). From 1996 to 2000 he was with the Department of “Informatica e Automazione” of the University of “RomaTre” of Rome. From February to July 1998 he was visiting researcher at the "Universidad Complutense de Madrid" working with Prof. L. F. Escudero. From 2002 to October 2015, Paolo Detti was assistant professor in Operations Research at the University of Siena (Italy). 

The research activities of Paolo Detti are mainly focused on solving theoretical and complex real-world scheduling and planning problems, mainly in the area of combinatorial optimization and scheduling. He recently worked on developing models, algorithms and decision support systems for radio resources assignment problems in wireless telecommunications systems, scheduling electric loads for the optimization of the electricity consumptions, and planning and transportation problems in healthcare.

Other fields of the research activity of Paolo Detti are:

- Single machine scheduling problems with precedence constraints;

- Parallel machine and multiprocessor scheduling;

- Coordination and scheduling problems in supply chains;

- Dominating problems on graphs.

Paolo Detti is author of several publications including International Journals papers, Book Chapters and Proceedings of International Conferences. A list of publications is available at Pubblication List
