Shadi Sharif Azadeh's short bio

Shadi Sharif Azadeh is a tenured assistant professor at Civil Engineering and Geosciences faculty and the co-director of SUM (Sustainable Urban Multi-modal Mobility) lab at TU Delft in the department of Transport & Planning. Her areas of expertise include integration of operations research with behavioural models for transport, mobility and logistics networks (Choice Driven Optimization). More precisely, her current major projects are related to 1) combining pricing and assortment optimisation methods to model supply and demand interplay for last mile delivery and urban mobility systems and 2) developing real-time methods to be incorporated in combinatorial optimisation framework for large-scale transport problems. She is an editorial board editor at Transportation Research Part B: Methodological, editorial board member of Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies and guest editor of three special issues at Transportation Science, EURO Journal of Transport and Logistics and OR Spectrum.
