Short bio

João Paulo Costa obtained a degree in electrical Engineering from the School of Science and Technology at the University of Coimbra in 1988, a Ph.D. in Management by the University of Coimbra in 1995, and a Habilitation degree in Management Science in 2013 in the same university. He is currently Full Professor at the Faculty of Economics, University of Coimbra (FEUC). He is also a researcher at the INESC Coimbra and CeBER R&D centers. He held temporary invited positions at the University Augsburg and the University of Siegen. His publications include several dozens of articles in peer-reviewed international journals (recently: Journal of Global Optimization, Decision Support Systems, International Journal of Information Technology & Decision Making, European Journal of Operational Research), as well as dozens of peer-reviewed book-chapter from international publishers and proceedings from international conferences.
