Major Professional Contributions:

Major scientific contributions focus on the fusion of computational intelligence and pattern recognition, their real life application in computational biology, remote sensing and medical image analysis. It is a break through work which proposed the use of center-based encoding for cluster seeking using genetic algorithms, resulting in faster convergence. Consequently, it became possible to partition large data sets using evolutionary clustering avoiding getting stuck at local optima.
Development of archive based multiobjective simulated annealing (AMOSA) method using novel concepts of amount of domination and situation specific acceptance probabilities.
Pioneering contributions in multiobjective evolutionary clustering (MOEC) and biclustering (MOBC).
