My area of research interest is investigation and developing metaheuristic optimisation techniques. My work here includes the theoretical studies of algorithmic performance with different problems, improving the effectiveness of models, problem's representation and search techniques in different application areas, such as Timetabling, Scheduling, Bioinformatics, Grid Scheduling, Logistic and Transportation problems.
I am carrying out a research into an algorithmic behavior in respect of correlations between different search characteristics and their influence onto the overall performance, the algorithmic reliability, the time-cost balance in optimization, the systematization of different problem types in respect of the algorithmic feedback, the user-computer interaction in optimization processes (including parameterization complexity) and bridging the gap between theory and practice in optimization.
Few days ago I have opened my Metaheuristic Optimization Forum. It is almost empty now, but you are welcome to place your posts or register there.
Heuristics love the testing. Compare different search heuristics with my Multiheuristic Optimization Software.
I have proposed a new optimisation method called Late Acceptance Hill-Climbing.
In December 2011 I have won a 1st place prize in the International Optimisation Competition using the algorithm based on the Late Acceptance Hill-Climbing. Please, visit also my unofficial web page where I am collecting an information about participating algorithms.
I have proposed an adaptive modification of Geat Deluge metaheuristic, called Flex-Deluge algorithm.
I have developed an Active Data Specification Format (ADSF) for Multi-problem optimisation benchmarks.
