Biography

Dr. Sauré completed his Ph.D. in Management Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Martin L. Puterman and Prof. Jonathan Patrick. He received his M.Sc. degree in Operations Management and his professional degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Chile in 2002. Dr. Sauré has over twelve years of experience developing, implementing and applying advanced analytics techniques to large-scale, real-world business problems in several industries. He is an expert in the development of advanced capacity planning and scheduling techniques. Dr. Sauré has worked with the British Columbia Cancer Agency on numerous patient scheduling projects as well as other projects aimed to provide timely access to quality cancer care. He has previously taught several undergraduate and graduate courses at UBC and at the University of Chile.

Research areas

Dr. Sauré's research interests include advanced modelling and decision-making under uncertainty and their applications to large-scale problems in service operations. In particular, the study of resource allocation problems in health care and other areas. From a methodological point of view, his research focuses on the development of advanced analytics techniques for dynamic resource allocation problems.
