Prof. Torres-Machi’s research deals with the development of decision-making systems aimed to incorporate sustainability and long-term analysis in infrastructure asset management, with an especial emphasis in transportation. Current state of practice reveals that transportation infrastructure managers barely consider environmental performance and current evaluations solely rely on technical and economic criteria. Having detected this gap, Torres-Machi works with multi-objectvive optimization tools aimed to incorporate, in an integrated manner, technical, economic, and environmental aspects in the management of transportation infrastructure. The outcomes derived from Prof. Torres-Machi’s research provide novel and practical solutions aimed to improve current infrastructure management.
