Investigación / Research

My research area is related with the application of Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) to solve optimization problems, such as the Satisfiability Problem (SAT), Quality Assignment Problem (QAP) or others issued from Operations Research fields. EAs are powerful metaheuristic (solving methods for a wide range of problems) to solve complex mathematical problems. They imitate the natural process of evolution, representing candidate solutions as individuals, and objective function as the nature pression for survival. Crossover and mutation, among other specialized improvement operators, are applied to individuals.

Because of the confluence of diverse operators, EAs have many parameters, and their correct setting is a complex problem also. During my PhD studies I developed some techniques to establish an automatic control of those parameters, so the next step is to export these ideas to other metaheuristics, trying to combine them to solve one problem, what is known as Hyperheuristic.
