Alexander E.I. Brownlee


I'm interested in value-added optimisation: techniques which yield optimal or near-optimal solutions but also reveal underlying information about the problem to better support decision making. My main focus is in metaheuristics, including evolutionary algorithms and estimation of distribution algorithms; related issues such as fitness modelling (and mining such models), handling constraints and multiple objectives, and decision support; and application areas including scheduling and simulation-based optimsation in civil engineering and transport.
