General

I joined Computer Science in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences as a lecturer in January 2006. 
Previously, I held research positions at the Computer and Automation Research Institute, Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, Hungary. At the same time I lectured in artificial intelligence at various levels for the Eötvös Loránd University and the Dennis Gábor University in Budapest. 

Between 2001 and 2003 I was a lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. where I lectured in artificial intelligence and human computer interaction.

My main research interests are in genetic programming, evolutionary computation and artificial intelligence in general.
