Research Focus

Maximilian Schiffer joined the Chair of Operations Management in October 2014. He holds a bachelor and a master degree in business administration and electrical engineering. In September 2017 he received a Dr. rer. pol. for his thesis ‘Logistics networks with intermediate stops’. His Ph. D. was supervised by Prof. Gilbert Laporte and Prof. Michael Schneider.

Dr. Schiffer’s research interests span across different fields of optimization and cover a wide range of transportation and logistics topics, e.g., electric commercial vehicles and autonomous systems, production planning, and data science. He collaborates frequently with some of the best international researchers in these fields, e.g., from Stanford University and HEC Montreal.
