Dr. Ke Li is a Lecturer in Data Analytics at the University of Exeter. He earned his PhD degree from the Department of Computer Sciences at City University of Hong Kong in 2014. During 2013 to 2014, he was a member of Metaheristic Optimization (MOP) group, directed by Prof. Qingfu Zhang at City University of Hong Kong. After that, he spent a year as a postdoctoral research scholar in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University, under the supervision of Prof. Kalyanmoy Deb. Before joining Exeter, he was a research fellow in CERCIA, led by Prof. Xin Yao, at the University of Birmingham.

Research Interests

My research mainly focuses on the computational intelligence, particularly, evolutionary computation (evolutionary multiobjective optimization and applications in industry) and machine learning. Currently, I especially interest in the following topics:

  • Evolutionary multi-objective optimization and decision making
  • Large-scale optimization
  • Search-based software engineering
  • Statistical machine learning and data analysis

I have published more than 30 papers in the field of evolutionary computation, including the prestigious journals, i.e., IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics. I am always pationate to supervise research students on the above mentioned topics. Please shoot me an email if you are interested in any of them.

Peer Esteem

I served as the regular reviewers for more 15 journals, including IEEE TEVC, TCYB, TFS, TIE, TKDE, TVT. I also served as the programme committees for more than 6 international conferences, including CEC and GECCO.
