Academic Qualifications

  • ASEAN Engineer
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Sciences, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven – Belgium, 1991
  • Master of Science in Industrial Management, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven – Belgium, 1988
  • Master of Industrial Engineering, University of the Philippines – Diliman, Quezon City, 1983
  • Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering, University of Santo Tomas – Manila, Philippines, 1978

Research Highlights

  • EOQ type formulations for controlling repairable inventories with deterministic demand and a fixed scrapping rate
  • Mathematical model for determining optimal stock levels of multiple aircraft parts which are repairable: The model considers two levels of indenture and allows replacement of non-repairable items with new purchases.
  • Mixed-integer nonlinear goal programming model for the faculty staffing problem covering selected departments of an academic institution: The model promises to be a useful decision support tool for academic administrators in their task of meeting higher education quality requirements, while satisfying institution-based concerns.
  • 0-1 integer linear programming models for solving the academic timetabling problem in two stages: The first stage seeks to find the best faculty assignment to courses and sections where these courses are offered. The second stage finds an appropriate weekly schedule for the faculty-course-section assignment obtained in the first stage.
