I received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the University of Leicester, U.K., in 2008, the M.Sc. degree in Natural Computation from the University of Birmingham, U.K., in 2009, and the Ph.D degree in Computer Science from the University of Leicester, U.K. in 2013.
My research interests include evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, memetic computing, combinatorial optimization problems, heuristics and metaheuristics, artificial neural networks, computational intelligence in dynamic and uncertain environments and relevant real-world applications. Currently, I am the Vice-Chair of the IEEE Task Force on Evolutionary Computation in Dynamic and Uncertain Environments (under the Evolutionary Computation Technical Committee of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society), a Member of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and an Associate Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.
