My interests lie in neuroevolution and evolutionary algorithms. Currently, I am working on the simulation of predator-prey behavior in nature, focusing on the complex predatory and social behaviors of spotted hyenas. This project is in collaboration with Prof. Kay Holekamp at Michigan State University under BEACON, a Science and Technology Center funded by NSF.
