Rafa's Photo

Rafa Martí is Professor in the Statistics and Operations Research department at the University of Valencia, Campus de Burjassot, Valencia, Spain. His teaching and research are devoted to Statistics, Mathematical Programming, and Heuristic Optimization. He is co-author of the Scatter Search (Kluwer 2003) and The Linear Ordering Problem (Springer 2011) monographs, and has secured an american patent. Prof. Martí is currently Area Editor in the Journal of Heuristics and Associate Editor in the Math. Prog. Computation and the Int. Journal of Metaheuristics.

Prof. Martí has published almost 200 papers, and around half of them are in JCR-indexed journals (h-index=42 and i10-index=97 according to Google scholar). He has also contributed with around 100 presentations in conferences and universities, from which about half of them were invited. Martí is Senior Research Associate of OptTek Systems (USA), and has been invited professor at the University of Colorado (USA), University of Molde (Norway), University of Graz (Austria), and University of Bretagne-Sud (France).

Research project

Rafa Martí and Abraham Duarte coordinate the OPTSICOM research project with 11 members in 2 universities. The acronym stands for Optimization of Complex Systems. In this project we develop algorithms, based on metaheuristic methods, which integrated in a software, solve hard optimization problems. It has been funded by the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad with the code TIN2015-65460-C02 (2016-2018). In the OPTSICOM website, codes, instances and best known solutions for the problems in which we are working are available.
