His research focuses on combinatorial optimisation, in particular architecture and implementation techniques for constraint solvers, translation of constraint modelling languages, and industrial applications. Guido leads the development of the MiniZinc constraint modelling language and toolchain. He is one of the main developers of Gecode, a state-of-the-art constraint programming library. Through his collaboration with industry, he has extensive experience with optimisation solutions for steel producers.
Guido's broader research interests include programming languages and computational logic.
Guido graduated and received his doctoral degree (Dr.-Ing.) from the Department of Computer Science, Saarland University, Germany. Before joining Monash University as a Lecturer and Monash Larkins Fellow in February 2012, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at NICTA Victoria Laboratory, Saarland University (Germany), and K.U.
