Dr. M. (Mansoor) Davoodi


This is Mansoor Davoodi. I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science and my main field is optimization algorithms. Currently, I am an assistant professor at the Department of Computer science at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences, Zanjan, Iran.
I am a visitor at TLO starting from this September. I work on a novel model combining routing problem and location analysis.


My main research areas include:

  • Computational Geometry and its Applications
  • Algorithms for Robotics and Motion Planning
  • Modeling and Handling Geometric Imprecise Data
  • Soft Computing and its Applications
  • Multi-objective Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Advanced Algorithms
  • Approximation Algorithms
  • Randomized Algorithms
  • Multi-objective Optimization
