Research Professor of Complex Systems

  • About

    Research Interests:

    (1) how evolutionary algorithms work, e.g., when and how recombination is a useful evolutionary operator;

    (2) how interaction topology affects the ability of populations to establish and maintain cooperation and other group structures and behavior;

    (3) the use of evolutionary algorithms as part of general learning systems, e.g., Holland-type classifier systems; 

    (4) how coordinated behavior emerges from populations of agents with co-evolving models of each other
