Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Research at UNSW at ADFA and Progress on Surrogate Assisted Optimization for Computationally Expensive Problems

BTG Talk, 02/10/2008. Tapabrata Ray, School of Aerospace, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, University of New South Wales, Australia

Abstract

The first part of the presentation will provide a brief overview of recent research being conducted by the Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Group at the University of New South Wales, Australian Defence Force Academy Australia. The second part of the presentation will focus on challenges involved in dealing with computationally expensive optimization problems and our progress in that direction.

Background of the Speaker

Dr Tapabrata Ray is from the School of Aerospace, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, University of New South Wales Australia where he is currently Senior Lecturer and the Leader of the Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Group. He holds all three (Bachelors, Masters and a PhD) from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. Since his PhD, he has worked in various capacities with three major research institutes in Singapore namely Information Technology Institute, Institute of High Performance Computing and Temasek Labs at National University of Singapore. Currently he is visiting CERCIA and will be around till mid Feb 2009 working on multiobjective and dynamic optimization for CARP problems. His interests are in the area of all forms of optimization methods suitable for multiobjective constrained optimization.
