Dr. Angel A. Juan was born in Castalla (Alicante, Spain) in 1972. He is Associate Professor of Decision Analytics (accredited as Full Professor / Catedratico) in the Computer Science Dept. at the Open University of Catalonia (UOC). He is also a Researcher at the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3), as well as a frequent Lecturer at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Dr. Juan holds a Ph.D. in Applied Computational Mathematics (UNED), an M.S. in Information Systems & Technology (UOC), and an M.S. in Applied Mathematics (University of Valencia). He completed predoctoral internships at Harvard University and at University of Alicante, as well as a postdoctoral internship at the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics. He has been invited researcher at the University of Southampton (UK), at LAAS-CNRS (France), at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Austria), and at the University of Portsmouth (UK). His research interests include applications of Decision Analytics (randomized algorithms, simulation, metaheuristics, and simheuristics) in Logistics & Transportation, Finance, and Internet Computing, as well as Mathematical e-Learning. He has published over 150 peer-reviewed papers in international journals, books and proceedings regarding these fields (over 30 indexed in ISI JCR and over 80 indexed in Scopus). Currently, he is the coordinator of several research projects and editorial board member of both the Int. J. of Data Analysis Techniques and Strategies and the Int. J. of Information Systems & Social Change. He is also a member of the INFORMS society. Dr. Juan has been Lecturer in 3 of the top 100-under-50 universities in the Thompson Reuters ranking, and he has been (co-)advisor of PhD/MSc thesis in up to 6 different universities in Spain, Portugal, and UK.
