About Me

Xinye Cai received his BENG in the Department of Electronic and Information Engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, in 2004, Master by Research in Department of Electronics, University of York, in 2006 and PhD in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Kansas State University in 2009.

Research Interest

My main research interest is computational intelligence (a major branch of artificial intelligence), multiobjective optimizaiton, meta-heuristic algorithms, data mining and their applications in real-world problems. Recently, I am focusing upon developing meta-heuristic algorithms for multiobjective (NP-hard, constrained, nonlinear, continuous or combinatorial) optimization problems with high-dimensional variables, as well as data-driven optimization (big data, machine learning + optimization).

I have published more than 40 papers in various journals and conferences, e.g., IEEE Transaction on Evolutionary Computation, IEEE Transaction on Cybernetics, IEEE Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics, Soft Computing, IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC2012-2017), IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (SSCI2013), ACM Proceedings in the Genetic and Evolutionary Computing Conference(GECCO2007,GECCO2008, GECCO2014).
