Message
I'm generally interested in researching applications of Evolutionary Algorithms (GA, GP) to hard problems. My current projects are the optimization of Earthquake Models, Oil Reservoir Models and Medical Data Clustering using evolutionary algorithms. I am also interested in the study of Social Implications of computer sciences, Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Games, and Scientific Methodology for Computer Science research.
