About me

I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from George Mason University, with a focus on Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Evolutionary Computation. I worked closely with both Dr. Kenneth De Jong and Dr. Sean Luke.

About this blog

I decided to start this blog because there were some research related things that I wanted to talk about, and scientific papers just are not the right venue. For example:

  • Some (hopefully) simple examples for people who want to learn about Evolutionary Computation (EC) on their own.
  • Demonstrations of some of the tools I’ve built, and how to use them.
  • Explanations of some of the more complex ideas and theories related to EC, in the simplest possible terms that I can manage.
  • My personal thoughts about what might make Evolutionary Algorithms more useful and more evolvable.
