Francesca Maggioni is an Associate Professor in Operations Research (s.s.d. MAT/09) at the Department of Management, Economics and Quantitative Methods at University of Bergamo (ITALY). She has held research visiting fellowships at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, Lancaster University Management School, Molde University College in Norway, University of Newcastle, University of Maryland, University of Vienna, "Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche sur les Reseaux d’Entreprise, la Logistique et le Transport” (CIRRELT) Montreal, Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique (LRI) Université Paris Sud and Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken where she has delivered invited seminars. She obtained a Ph.D. in Pure and Applied Mathematics from the University of Milano-Bicocca (2006) and Master degree in Mathematics at University Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Brescia (2003) with laude. Her research interests center on optimization of sequential decision problems under uncertainty using different methodologies like Stochastic Programming and Robust Optimization. The applications considered are mainly in logistics, energy and biology areas. Former research interests are on geometric, topological and energetic aspects of knotted filaments. On these topics, she has published more than 50 research papers, which include 38 articles published in refereed Scopus/ISI international journals. The paper "On the groundstate energy spectrum of magnetic knots and links" has been selected by the editorial board of the Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical as one of the best research works of 2014, including a special mention in the JPA 2014 Highlights compilation. She has been co-chair of the Winter School in Stochastic Programming (January 15-21 2017) Passo del Tonale ITALY and organizer of several invited sessions at AIRO, EURO, APMOD, CMS, ECSO and ICSP Conferences and the stream "Stochastic Models for Service Operations" at IFORS Conference in 2014. In 2016 she has become an elected member and secretary of the Managerial Board of the "European Working Group on Stochastic Programming" (EWGSP) and elected member and treasurer of the Managerial Board of the "Committee on Stochastic Programming" (COSP) up to 2022. In 2018 she has become chair with P. Beraldi of the AIRO Thematic Section of Stochastic Programming. She is Associate Editor of the Journal Computational Management Science (CMS), guest Editor of the special issues "CMS 2016" in CMS, "Stochastic Optimization: Theory and Applications, in memory of Marida Bertocchi" in Annals of Operations Research, "Optimization for Management Science ICSP2019 conference" in CMS. She is the referent for the University of Bergamo of the "Sportello Matematico per l'Industria Italiana". She teaches and consults in the areas of Operations Research and Optimization.
