Research Interests

I am interested in the design and implementation of bio-inspired metaheuristics for optimization (both single and multiobjective). Within my research group, we have developed a variety of new optimization approaches based on genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, particle swarm optimization, ant colony, differential evolution, artificial immune systems, genetic programming, and scatter search.

Keywords:   evolutionary multi-objective optimization, constrained evolutionary optimization, metaheuristics for optimization.
