Welcome to My Homepage

I am a research professor at the Research Center Business Informatics (former Center Process and Product Engineering) of the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences, Dornbirn, Austria.
I am also a co-opted member of the Faculty of Engineering, Computer Science, and Psychology at Ulm University, Germany
Formerly, I was with the Chair of Systems Analysis at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Dortmund, Germany, in different positions finally as a professor of computer science. You may also visite my old homepage there.

My areas of scientific interests are:

  • Evolutionary Computation (Evolution Strategies and Genetic Algorithms)
  • Computational Intelligence (Fuzzy Systems, Neural Networks, and Evolutionary Algorithms)
  • Methods and Algorithms gleaned from nature (Bionics, Natural Computing)
  • Optimization techniques (engineering, simulation optimization)
  • Modeling and simulation of technical processes (in general)
  • Dynamical systems theory (systems analysis)
My current research focusses on:
  • Evolutionary and other approaches to noisy optimization
  • Evolutionary Algorithms for constrained optimization
  • Theoretical analysis of Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Robust engineering optimization
My services for the scientific community comprise (among others):
I am author of the Springer book The Theory of Evolution Strategies and of numerous journal and conference papers. A complete list can be found here. If you don't know what Evolution Strategies are, please refer to Scholarpedia's Evolution Strategies. If this raises your interest further, then you should read the overview paper Evolution strategies – A comprehensive introduction.
