Ann-Brith Strömberg

Professor, Mathematical Sciences

Ann-Brith Strömberg is Professor of Mathematical Optimization. Her research includes modelling and solution of optimization problems, including discrete, convex nonsmooth, simulation based, and multiobjective optimization. Much of her research is carried out in cooperation with academy and industry. It includes scheduling of maintenance and production, combinatorial design problems with several objectives, integration of variable electricity generation in the energy system, as well as transport planning. Ann-Brith Strömberg is one of the leaders of the research group in Mathematical Optimization.
