Research Interests
BCMS Honours Topic: "Genetic algorithm assisted decision trees."

Genetic algorithms are an interesting area of programming in that an element of randomness can give rise to results that might otherwise go unnoticed. Combining these techniques with decision tree learning and ensembles of decision trees could lead to improvements in the classification of data.

This investigation aims to develop and compare different approaches to combining decision trees with genetic programming and establishing if and how improvements can be achieved.
