PhD Supervision

I have been privileged to work with a number of talented individuals working their way to a PhD. They are listed below, with a brief note about where they are now (if I have that information!)

Current Students

Principal supervisor for Manjinder Singh - mining surrogates for explaining non-deterministic solvers

Principal supervisor for Muyao Fan - building surrogates for optimisation of deep-learning models

Former students

Principal supervisor for Aidan Wallace - mining surrogates for explaining non-deterministic solvers - switched careers to paramedicine and still assisting with teaching in machine learning

Principal supervisor for Kevin Graham - viva date 7/1/2019, "An Investigation Of Factors Influencing Algorithm Selection For High Dimensional Continuous Optimisation Problems" - currently working with me on a few industrial projects

Co-supervisor for Ken Reid (principal supervisor Jingpeng Li) - viva date 2/9/2019 - "Metaheuristics For Solving Real World Employee Rostering And Shift Scheduling Problems" - currently working at Mitchigan State University
