Stephan’s Research Visit at BEACON, Michigan State University

Since April Stephan Winkler is at Michigan State University where he is joining BEACON, an NSF Center for the Study of Evolution in Action lead by Prof. Erik Goodman, as a visiting scholar. He is there working with computer scientists, bioinformaticians, biologists, and psychologists on several interesting research topics, namely population dynamics in genetic algorithms and genetic programming, the identification and classification of wings, simulation-based evolution of behavior and intelligence, and evolutionary feature selection and parameter optimization for early cancer detection.

Stephan will stay at BEACON until July, then he will attend GECCO 2014 and afterwards he will come back home to HEAL.
