It is a pleasure to announce a new member of our research staff, Deon Garrett, who received his Ph.D. from the University of Memphis in 2008, where he worked on metaheuristics for multiobjective optimization. His work was primarily in building algorithms that can learn to detect and exploit structures in multiobjective search spaces. Dr. Garrett has also worked in machine learning and computer security. He has served as a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO), the Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC), and has served on the Program Committee for the SpringSim Annual Simulation Symposium.
It is a pleasure to introduce a new member of staff, Laura Nesaule, who is taking over from Heiða Helgadóttir as our Administrative Assistant.
