For many years, he conducted research projects related to optimization in transportation, logistics, and network design, at several academic and near-industry research institutions.

In his free time, Mario frequently goes for a hike (with neighbor’s dog), enjoys nature with and without camera, strives to produce an optimal espresso, and reads Sci-Fi books.
