Research foci

My research is focussed on nature-inspired (meta-)heuristics, especially the Chemical Reaction Optimisation (CRO) devised in 2010. The extension and the parallelisation of CRO is part of my work, as well as the development of a strategy for classification and categorisation of metaheuristics. This strategy aims to facilitate comparing metaheuristics in terms of quality and originality. I am also interested in combining CRO with machine learning techniques. Furthermore, I apply the heuristics to problems from the field of bioinformatics.
