Research profile

In her research, Layla addresses various operational research problems in transportation and logistics. She is particularly interested in shared mobility such as carsharing, bikesharing and ride-hailing. Most of her research focuses on strategic questions such as fleet design, but she always considers the operational implications of the decision. Layla has used various different methods, including mixed integer programming, Markov decision processes, and game theory. She strongly believes in the importance of using the right method for the problem at hand, rather than specializing in a single method. Therefore, she likes collaborating with methodological experts.
