Fernando Sandoya is a professor in the department of mathematics at the Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral. He started using Mathematica and the Wolfram Language in 2000 for his teaching, research, and consultancy work. He teaches undergraduate and graduate classes focused on mathematical models of optimization, linear and integer programming, combinatorial optimization, simulation, and statistics in engineering and science. His research focuses on the development of mathematical models of optimization in logistics and transportation as well as the development of metaheuristic procedures for solving optimization problems of the NP-hard type. He is the author and coauthor of several research papers and books. As a consultant, he has developed projects in Ecuador for major companies in the food and services sectors, as well as the public sector.
