My primary focus is on the efficient design and use of Computational Intelligence techniques for various applications.
In particular I am focusing on evolutionary computation (Genetic algorithms & Genetic Programming) and Particle Swarm Optimization. I am also interested in
artificial neural networks.
Some areas my students and I are currently working on are:
Follow this link for our: Publications
- Combinatorial Optimization (any particular problem types - i.e.,
mostly network-based problems and scheduling)
- Multi-Objective Optimization
- Optimization in Dynamic Environments
- Automatic inference of Graph models for Complex networks
- Image classification of Hyperspectral Data (with Dr. Frank Fueten)
A number of students are/have been involved with my research, either at graduate level, research
assistantships, or undergraduate 4F90 Honors projects. A number of them did bona-fide research
work resulting in reputable journal and conference publications.
