My research focuses primarily on nature inspired methodologies to tackle combinatorial and numerical optimization problems, and computational biology problems. My main tools of interest, in particular, are: Genetic Algorithms, Clonal Selection Algorithms (a special class of Artificial Immune Systems), and Reverse Engineering Methodologies.
