Güneş researches exact and heuristic algorithms for integer and mixed-integer optimisation problems and their applications to healthcare and logistics problems. His expertise with exact optimisation methods includes branch-and-cut-and-price and cutting plane algorithms, especially for vehicle routing problems.

In terms of heuristic optimisation methods, he has utilized variants of local search, tabu search, and large neighbourhood search in his papers and he has a working knowledge of genetic algorithms and neural networks. The areas of application for his research extend to the optimisation of ambulance location, vehicle routing, and airline crew scheduling.
