I recievend my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Surrey in 2016, financed by the Honda Research Institute Europe (HRI-EU). My principal supervisor at the University of Surrey was Prof. Yaochu Jin, and my co-supervisor at the HRI-EU was Prof. Markus Olhofer. I am now working as a Research Fellow with the CERCIA Group at the University of Birmingham, directed by Prof. Xin Yao.

I was the founding/leading co-chair of IEEE MBEA'2016, IEEE MBEA'2017, IEEE CEC'2017 Competition on Evolutionary Many-Objective Optimization; the Editorial Board Member of Complex & Intelligent Systems (2017 - ); the recipient of the 2015 Association of British Turkish Academics (ABTA) Doctoral Researcher Award (News), the 2015 University of Surrey Vice-Chancellor’s Award (News), the 2016 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad (国家优秀自费留学生奖学金), and the 2018 IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation Outstanding Paper Award (News).

Research Interests

I am particularly interested in Computational Intelligence based optimization of complex real-world problems, e.g., large optimization problems. Related research topics include swarm intelligence, model based evolutionary algorithms, evolutionary multi-objective optimization, etc.
