Areas of expertise: Optimization and Optimal Control Theory / Dynamical Systems / Data Mining
Dr Guillermo Pineda-Villavicencio currently researches the theory and application of Discrete Mathematics. Within Discrete Mathematics, I am mainly interested in the areas of Combinatorics, Permutation Groups and Combinatorial Optimization. However, I have also worked on Computational Geometry and on the design of geographic information systems.
I form part of the Centre for Informatics and Applied Optimization (CIAO) at Federation University Australia, and of the research group Graph Theory and Applications (GTA) at the University of Newcastle (Australia).
I am also a moderator and contributor to the Combinatorics Wiki project, project aiming to present the latest concepts, results, conjectures and references in various topics of Combinatorics.
