Youssef Diouane is a professor at the department of Mathematics and Industrial Engineering (MAGI) of Polytechnique Montréal, Canada, effective February 1, 2022. Before joining MAGI, Prof. Diouane was a professor in the department of Complex Systems and Engineering (DISC) at ISAE-SUPAERO,Toulouse, France.

His research is concerned with using numerical optimization and its applications to complex systems, design and data sciences. He targets to develop and provide efficient optimization algorithms with optimal guarantees to solve optimization problems arising in engineering applications.

He is particularly interested in Black box optimization and its application to simulation based problems, likely to be expensive-to-evaluate and/or subject to uncertainties.
