PhD. Reserch

Supervisors: Dr. Dario Landa-Silva , Per Kristian Lehre.

The Workforce Scheduling and Routing Problem (WSRP) is described as the assignment of personnel to visits across various geographical locations. Solving this problem demands tackling scheduling and routing constraints while aiming to minimise the total operational cost. This type of mobile workforce scheduling problem arises in many real-world operational scenarios. Thus, I investigate the use of Genetic Algorithms (GAs) for Workforce Scheduling and Routing

MSc. Advanced Computing Science - University of Nottingham 2012. Dissertation: “Genetic algorithm for nurse rostering at Riyadh-Al-Kharj Hospital in Saudi Arabia

BSc. In Science with a minor degree in Education – Taif University (2006). Project: “Automation of registration department in Taif University”.
