Jodelson Sabino

Experienced IT Project Manager and Advanced Researcher in Applied Optimization

Name:Jodelson Sabino
Date of birth:20/08
Address:Av. Dante Michelini, 5500,Vitória,ES,Brasil
IT infrastructure and information systems Project Manager and Researcher in Artificial Intelligence area to solve hard combinatorial optimization problems that emerges in real world industrial operations and planning.


2003 - 2008


Doctor of Science in Industrial Engineering

Title obtained from PUC-Rio University located at Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Brazil, with the thesis titled “ANT COLONY OPTIMIZATION APPLIED TO SWITCH ENGINE OPERATIONS PROGRAMMING (translated)” under the supervision of Prof. José Eugênio Leal from PUC-Rio University and co-supervision of Dr. Thomas Stützle from IRIDIA (Institut de Recherches Interdisciplinaires et de Développements en Intelligence Artificielle), located at Brussels, Belgium, with whom I worked from  October/2005 to October/2006 to develop a custom made ACO based algorithm to tackle the  target problem.


1999 - 2004


Master of Science in Informatics

Title obtained from Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, located at Vitória (ES), Brazil, with dissertation titled “ANT COLONY COMPETITION APPLIED TO SWITCH ENGINE ASSIGNMENT IN RAILROAD YARDS (translated)” under the supervision of Dra. Lucia Catabriga.

The dissertation proposes a meta-heuristic method based on a multiple ant colony optimization system to solve the problem of switch engines assignment in a railroad yard. According to the proposed modeling, the problem presented here is similar to the one known in the literature as a Full Truckload Pickup and Delivery Problem with Time Windows and Capacity Constraints (PDPTWC) and our objective is to fulfill a set of transportation requests with minimal cost, which is described as a multi-objective function. The specific characteristics of this problem are presented and a solution method based in the COMPETants algorithm is developed for the switch engine designation. The model validation and the estimated cost reduction with the implementation of the algorithm proposed is done based on a real life case study.

011/ES Grupo Escoteiro do Mar Ilha de Vitória

Scout Group President

Unanimously elected President of the Sea Scout Group Ilha de Vitória.

Scouting is a worldwide organization that exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

The basic unit of organisation is the Scout Group. This is constituted as a non-profit organization  based in a local community where a number of adult leaders give their time voluntarily to help the development of young people. The Group is led by the Group Scout President, whose job is to co-ordinate the Group’s activities, to ensure continuity and development and to be the Scout Group representative to the outside world. In other words, a Group Scout resembles a small firm, where the president sets the tone for its image, management and operations but also establishes broad policies and sets out strategic objectives.

The President also leads the Scout Group Board of Directors. The current Board of Director of the Sea Scout Group Ilha de Vitória is committed to provide Good Governance practices, qualitative Youth Programme and well-focused Adults Management System.
