BEGOÑA VITORIANO is Associate Professor at the Department of Statistics and Operational Research of Complutense University of Madrid, since 2009. PhD in Mathematics (Operational Research) in 1994, she has been university lecturer since 1990 at Complutense University and at Pontificia Comillas University (1997-2006), where she was also member of the Technological Research Institute. Begoña is also member of the Interdisciplinary Mathematics Institute of UCM, where she is the organiser of the IMI Data Science Club and coordinator of the IMI programme DECDATA-HUMLOG: Decision Aid Models and Data Science for Disaster Logistics, Sustainability and Social Analysis. She is also coordinator of the PhD Programme in Mathematical Engineering, Statistics and Operational Research of Complutense University and Technical University of Madrid since 2015. She has been coordinator of the Master in Mathematical Engineering (UCM) and the Master in Disaster Management (UCM, UPM).

Since 2022, Begoña is the President of SEIO (Spanish Society of Statistics and Operational Research).
Begoña Vitoriano has been involved in research projects all along her career, especially in knowledge and technology transferring, leading research projects since 1998. She is author or around 50 research publications and has supervised 5 PhD theses. She has got 4 six-years research periods and 1 six-years transfer period recognized by the CNEAI. Her research area is Operational Research, in particular, Stochastic Optimisation and Multicriteria Decision Making, mostly focused on decision aid models for logistics in several sectors (power systems, transportation, disaster management, sustainable development…).
Besides she has got a big experience in Cooperation for Development, leading projects since 1995 for El Salvador, Peru and Mozambique (mainly focused on the development of Masters in Statistics), and coordinating and taking part of different Committees for Developing Countries and Development (European Mathematical Society, SEIO, CEMAT, CIMPA…).
