Joel Lehman
Postdoctoral Fellow
Joel got his PhD with Ken Stanley at UCF in 2012, focusing on novelty search in neuroevolution. He is currently a Research Educator in the Freshman Research Initiative program at UT, teaching the "Computational Intelligence in Game Design" stream. His research goal is to write algorithms inspired by natural evolution that continually produce a wild diversity of interesting and complex things.
