Hormoz Shahrzad
Collaborator
Hormoz has worked on many topics in evolutionary computation, both in theory and practice. He's masters thesis focused on BLADE, a method for automatically focusing evolutionary search to the most promising part of the genome, where the search is distributed over multiple hosts.
