BIO

I recently integrated the Natural Computing Research & Applications Group located in Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland as a post-doctoral researcher. I have a strong background in Operations Research and performance optimisation of algorithms. I love finding solutions to challenging engineering questions; people see me as enthusiastic, focused and hard worker. My post-doc position is in close collaboration with Bell Labs, Nokia and aims at delivering the work programme outlined in the Applications of Evolutionary Design (App'ED) project. App'ED aims to bring us closer to automated design tools inspired by the natural world. The tools will be applied to optimise Future Networks & Communications such as 5G networks.I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland. My Ph.D. topic is Multi-objective Optimisation of Large Scale Data Centres: I applied multi-objective meta- heuristics to satisfy complex requirements of capital allocators.I obtained both my B.Sc. in Computer Science and my M.Sc. in Computer Science, track: Optimisation In Operations Research in 2013 from the University of Nantes, France.
