Co-chair of CEC 2017 Special Session: Theoretical Foundations of Bio-inspired Computation as part of the 2017 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation, June 5 - 8, 2017, Donostia-San Sebastián , Spain (together with Pietro S. Oliveto). Note: accepted papers of the highest quality will be invited for extension to a Special Issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
Proceedings Chair of ACM GECCO 2016.
I am currently a researcher in the Algorithm Engineering Group at Hasso-Plattner-Institut, Universität Potsdam in Germany. My research is supported by the SAGE Project, which is funded by the European Commission FP7 ICT FET Open Scheme. I have recently moved from the Chair of Theoretical Computer Science I in the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena, Germany.
I have held two previous postdoctoral fellowships. Most recently I was at Colorado State University working in the lab of Darrell Whitley. Before that, I was at The University of Adelaide in Adelaide, South Australia working in the lab of Frank Neumann.
