My research involves applications of Evolutionary Computation in diverse areas of Metallurgy and Materials. I develop algorithms too. EvoNN (Evolutionary Neural Net) and BioGP (Bi-objective genetic Programming) are two such algorithms that create optimum models from non-linear noisy data and carry out multi-objective optimization in an evolutionary way. BioGP has been recently incorporated by Cyber Dyne srl (http://www.cyberdyne.it/), an Italian optimization software company in their flagship product Kimeme.
A special symposium entitled Evolutionary Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence in Metallurgy and Materials Science - in Honour of Professor Nirupam Chakraborti was organized during the 26th KomPlasTech Conference (Conference on Computer Methods in Materials Technology) held at Zakopane, Poland from January 13-16, 2019.
