Dr. Kalyanmoy Deb, Ph.D., Scientific Advisor
Kalyanmoy Deb holds the Endowed Chair in the Department of Electrical and Computing Engineering at Michigan State University. Prior to this position, he held the positions of Endowed Chair in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology in India.
Kalyanmoy established the Kanpur Genetic Algorithms Laboratory at the Indian Institute of Technology in 1997 and the Computational Optimization and Innovation (COIN) Laboratory at Michigan State University in 2013. He is the author of Multi-Objective Optimization using Evolutionary Algorithms, published by Wiley as part of its series on "Systems and Optimization". In an analysis of authors in the field of evolutionary computation, Kalyanmoy was identified as one of the most central authors in the community and designated as a "sociometric superstar" of the field. Kalyanmoy has several honors to his credit, which include the:
- Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award in engineering sciences;
- Thomson Citation Laureate Award for highly cited research in computer science; and
- MCDM Edgeworth-Pareto Award for creativity in the field
Kalyanmoy’s interests lie in the development and application of multi-criterion optimization methods for solving problems in the area of design, modeling, process control, scheduling, resource allocation and machine learning, as well as large-scale and non-linear problems for which customized optimization methods are most suitable.
