RESEARCH

My primary focus is on the efficient design and application of computational intelligence techniques. In particular, I am focusing on evolutionary computation (Genetic algorithms, Genetic Programming, Differential Evolution, etc) and Swarm Intelligence (Particle Swarm Optimization, Ant algorithms, etc). A major application area is optimization (multi-ojective/many-objective, combinatorial optimization, etc.,) and the automatic inference of complex systems. I am also interested in artificial neural networks for clustering, predication and game playing.
