My research focus is in the area of Bio-Inspired Computing, meaning the application of phenomena/strategies found in nature within a computer.  One such example is Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) where the simulation of how ants interact with each other can be used to solve complicated problems with non-obvious solutions, such as the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP).  My specific interests include...
