Research Interests
My research combines artificial intelligence and machine learning to build robust systems with state-of-the-art performance. I develop techniques to induce models of how algorithms for solving computationally difficult problems behave in practice. Such models allow to select the best algorithm and choose the best parameter configuration for solving a given problem. I lead the Meta-Algorithmics, Learning and Large-scale Empirical Testing (MALLET) lab and directing the Artificially Intelligent Manufacturing center (AIM) at the University of Wyoming. I have acquired more than $700K in funding to date.
