My research interest lies broadly in developing efficient evolutionary computation methods for design optimization. It encapsulates problems such as:
- Multi-/many-objective optimization and decision-making
- Constraint handling in evolutionary algorithms
- Bilevel optimization
- Computationally expensive/surrogate-assisted optimization
- Multi-concept optimization
