My primary research interest is in area of evolutionary computation and focuses on Genetic Algorithms and in the field of Collective/Swarm Intelligence, on Particle Swarm Optimization. Specifically, I am investigating new ways of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of these stochastic population-based global optimization algorithms and exploring the use of these tools in new application domains.
If you are wondering what this is, and what good it can do, the Economist had a nice short write-up on just that: Riders on a swarm.
