Nature-Inspired Computation Research Group
The nature-inspired computation research group at Exeter is interested in the study and application of naturally-inspired computing techniques to problems in Hydroinformatics, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology and Cognitive Science.
The group currently has four externally funded projects:
- SEQuence-Analysis Based Hyperheuristics (SEQAH) for Real-World Optimisation Problems
- Ant Colony Optimisation for the Discovery of Gene-Gene Interactions in Genome-Wide Association Studies
- Development of a discolouration risk optimisation tool - EPSRC CASE Studentship with Mouchel Ltd
- Simplified Dual-Drainage Modelling for Flood Risk Assessment in Urban Areas - 3 Year EPSRC Research Project
The group currently has 4 PhD students, and one postdoc.
