Short Bio

Julia Buwaya attained a German University Diplom (equivalent to a Master’s degree) in Mathematics from the Technical University of Berlin in 2013. After a stop at the RWTH Aachen University, she joined the Theoretical Computer Science & Sensor Lab of the University of Geneva at the beginning of 2015.


  • Scholar of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in their short program course Modeling and Simulation of Transportation Networks in July 2014
  • Member of the organization committee of the Annual International Conference (OR Conference) of the German Operations Research Society (GOR) in 2014
