Gabriele Eichfelder is a full Professor for Mathematical Methods of Operations Research at the Institute of Mathematics of the Technische Universität Ilmenau, Germany. She earned her Doctoral degree in 2006 and completed Habilitation at the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany in 2012. She works in the field of Mathematical Optimization with a special interest in nonlinear optimization with vector-valued and set-valued objective functions. In addition to fundamental theoretical studies, she has also been working on numerical solvers for applied engineering problems. Among others, her current research projects deal with nonlinear mixed-integer problems containing multiple objectives, and with handling uncertainties in a robust optimization within energy networks.
Professor Eichfelder has authored two Springer research monographs, has published extensively in top international journals, and has received several publication awards. Recently, she has been elected program director for the SIAM Activity Group on Optimization. Moreover, she served as a member of the programme committee for many conferences, among others the EURO Conference 2021 in Athens, or the recent EUROPT workshops. Among others, she was a member of the organizing committee of the 2021 SIAM conference on optimization and invited cluster chair for the ICCOPT 2019 in Berlin. Currently, she serves on the editorial boards of Computers & Operations Research, Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, EURO Journal of Computational Optimization, Operations Research Letters and Optimization, and as an area editor of the Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications.
