My research interests include: theory of randomized search heuristics, theory of evolutionary computation, parameterized complexity, randomized algorithms, graph theory.


I am an Assistant Professor (since August 2017) in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

We're hiring!

Christine Zarges and I are organizing the latest Online ThRaSH Seminar Series. This is a great opportunity to discuss and learn about current and cutting-edge research in the theoretical understanding of randomized search heuristics.

Awarded an NSF CAREER grant for research in Algorithmic Models of Adaptation

Track Chair (Theory Track) of ACM GECCO 2022 in Boston, MA.

Executive Board Member of ACM SIGEVO (elected 2021).

My student Luke Branson and I authored the paper Focused Jump-and-Repair Constraint Handling for Fixed-Parameter Tractable Graph Problems, which was awarded Best Paper at the 16th ACM/SIGEVO Conference on Foundations of Genetic Algorithms.

I was previously affiliated with the Algorithm Engineering Group at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany. My research there was supported by the SAGE Project, funded by the European Commission FP7 ICT FET Open Scheme. I have also held postdoctoral appointments in the Chair of Theoretical Computer Science Ⅰ at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena, Germany and in the School of Computer Science at the University of Adelaide in Adelaide, South Australia.
