My Research

I have obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Essex in Septemper 2011. The thesis title is "Empowerment Scheduling: A Multi-objective Optimization Approach Using Guided Local Search". More details is provided here.

My Specialities are Decision support systems, optimization, planning, scheduling, heuristics and meta-heuristics, evolutionary computation, constraint programming.

My research interest is mainly in the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques (e.g. searching, constraint programming and machine learning) in designing clever decision-support systems for domains such as resource management, logistics and business.



Selected Research Projects:


  • Multi-objectivization by Penalization: using multi-objective optimization techniques in solving single-objective optimization problems. (In Progress) 
  • Empowerment Scheduling: A flexible management approach in Workforce Scheduling, with the aim to let the computational intelligence techniques look at employees’ interests, in addition to the employer’s interest. 
  • Computational intelligence tools for financial forecasting problems.
