Laurent Alfandari is a Full Professor at ESSEC Business School, in the Information Systems, Decision Sciences and Statistics (IDS) Department. His research field is Operations Research and Decision analytics. He published book chapters and articles in international journals such as the European Journal of Operational Research, Annals of Operations Research, Computers and Operations Research, Discrete Applied Mathematics, Journal of Scheduling, Transportation Science, Omega. He teaches Decision Analytics and Operations Research courses in various ESSEC Business School programs (Grande Ecole Master in Management, Executive MBA, Executive Education SCM programs, PhD). He was also the Academic Director of the ESSEC specialized master in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. He carried out consulting studies and industrial contracts for SNCF, Babcock-Wanson, ESSEC BS, Aid-Impact. He was a member of the research team ranked #4 for the ROADEF-EURO international Challenge proposed by EDF in 2010, and also participated to the 2012 Google Challenge. He was Vice-President of the French Society of Operations Research & Decision-Aid (ROADEF) from 2012 to 2015.
