Hormoz Shahrzad
Masters Student
Hormoz has worked on many topics in evolutionary computation, both in theory and practice. He is currently working on a masters thesis 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.
