Julian Hall

I have been developing software for linear optimization since my time as a PhD student with Roger Fletcher in the late 1980's. A lecturer at the University of Edinburgh since 1990, my research has focused on serial and parallel computing techniques for implementing the simplex algorithm for linear programming. This has resulted in the development of HiGHS, the world's best open-source software for linear optimization.
