Research Assistant Professor Department of Computer Science and Engineering
My current research majorly focuses on the theoretical analysis and design of evolutionary algorithms. Comparing with the wide applications of evolutionary algorithms, the theoretical research falls behind. I devote my efort to the theory analysis on evolutionary algorithms, and hope that with the theoretical analysis, especially the runtime analysis, of evolutionary algorithms, researchers and practitioners could better understand the working principles, advantages and drawbacks of these black-box optimization algorithms so that they could design efficient algorithms for practical usage.
My previous research also focused on parallel optimization / high-performance computing, especially on the Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer.
