Carla Gomes is an associate professor of computer science at Cornell University, with joint appointments in Computer Science, Information Science, and Applied Economics and Management. She obtained a Ph.D. in computer science in the area of artificial intelligence and operations research from the University of Edinburgh. She also holds an M.Sc. in applied mathematics from the University of Lisbon. Her research has covered several areas in artificial intelligence and computer science, including planning and scheduling, integration of constraint reasoning and operations research techniques for solving combinatorial optimization problems, complete randomized search methods, and algorithm portfolios. Gomes’ central research themes are the integration of concepts from mathematical programming, constraint programming, and algorithm theory for large scale combinatorial problems; the study of the impact of structure on problem hardness; and the use of randomization techniques to improve the performance of exact (complete) search methods. Gomes is currently pursuing the new research area of Computational Sustainability. Gomes is the Lead PI of an NSF Expeditions in Computing award on Computational Sustainability and the director of the newly established Institute for Computational Sustainability at Cornell University. Gomes is a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
