Brief 

Xiaoyu QIN
Hello! 
I am a PhD research student in Computer Science at School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham, and supervised by Prof Per Kristian Lehre and Prof Ata Kaban.
Currently, I focus on the Theory of Evolutionary Algorithms, which is a branch of Evolutionary Computation in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
My research interests include Machine Learning, Optimisation and Data Analysis.
