Research

My main research topics are evolutionary computation and swarm intelligence. In recent studies, we have studied parallel programming for swarm intelligence algorithms.  I also study image processing, artificial neural networks, parallel programming with my PhD or Master students.

I am Editor and Editorial Board Member of Applied Soft Computing and International Journal of Machine Learning and Cybernetics.

I reviewed more than 150 papers for journals such as Expert Systems with Applications, Knowledge-Based Systems, International Journal of Production Economics, Applied Soft Computing, International Journal of Machine Learning and Cybernetics, Applied Mathematics and Computation, International Journal of Production Research, Neural Computing and Applications, British Journal of Mathematics & Computer Science, Soft Computing, Journal of Engineering Optimization, IEEE Sensors Journal, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics: Part B: Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics: Part A: Systems.
