Research objective. I want to understand stochastic search (AKA randomized optimization) in continuous, high-dimensional search spaces. When improving known or developing new algorithms, I strongly care about whether and how they are useful in practice. Typical research means are statistical machine learning techniques, Markov chain analysis, meaningful comparison methodologies, and adaptive parameter control, eventually bridging the gap to the practitioners.

Inria is a public, French research institution for science and technology, fully dedicated to research in computational science.
