Rune is Associate Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen and director of the Decision Optimization Lab where he has supervised five Ph.D. students. He received his PhD from the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University and was awarded "Hede Nielsen-Prisen" for his work on combining symbolic and heuristic search. His research collaboration on containership stowage planning with A.P. Moeller-Maersk has received more than DKK 9M in external funding. Rune has expertise within a wide range of optimization techniques including meta-heuristics, constraint programming, large neighborhood search, integer and linear programming, dynamic programming, constructive heuristics, binary decision diagrams, and configuration. He also works on data mining using machine learning algorithms such as decision tree learning, neural networks, Bayesian classifiers, and conditional random fields. CV, Academic Homepage
