My Research Activities

My research interest lies broadly in developing efficient evolutionary computation methods for design optimization.  It encapsulates problems such as:

- Multi-/many-objective optimization and decision-making

- Constraint handling in evolutionary algorithms

- Bilevel optimization

- Computationally expensive/surrogate-assisted optimization

- Multi-concept optimization
