Assistant Professor

Specialist in: Game theory

Margarida Carvalho, assistant professor in the Université de Montréal Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO), specializes in the study of game theory. Her research is based on approaches drawn from operations research and machine learning, two pillars of data science. Combining classical optimization problems with numerical modelling, it fuels a number of fundamental methodological contributions by incorporating the latest advances in data science. It also has applications in areas as varied as health, cybersecurity and managerial economics.

“I am actively working to create an inclusive ecosystem and promote a diversity of identities, backgrounds, ideas and perspectives among the new generation of scientists who are leading research at the interface of data science and operations research. The FRQ–IVADO Chair in Data Science for Combinatorial Game Theory also assists us in pursuing this objective.”
