Welcome to my website!
I am a researcher in the field of (direct) Optimization and primarily Evolutionary Computation.
My work is concerned with the performance analysis of Evolution Strategies (ES). In particular, I am investigating the behavior of (meta-)ES on noisy and/or constrained optimization problems. My interests involve the theoretical description of the related dynamical evolutionary system, as well as the design of new algorithm variants that successfully deal with specific difficulties in the mentioned environments.
Providing (improved) solutions to industrial real-world optimization problems is another field of interest. Moreover, the combination of optimization approaches with engineering design automation tasks has become a recent domain of competence.
