I am currently focusing my research on the Green Vehicle Routing and Scheduling Problem (GVRSP). In my past research I mainly focused on how costs and CO2 emissions could be minimised in urban freight logistics through reducing fuel consumption and exploiting cleaner alternative fuels such as CNG, LNG, biodiesel, and electricity. However, identifying speed as one very important factor in fuel consumption (especially in an urban context), in my current research I am mainly concerned with models and solution algorithms for GVRSPs based on real-time traffic data.
