Swarm Intelligence

Swarm intelligence refers to multiagent systems whose behavior is motivated by models of naturally occurring swarming systems, such as social insect swarms (e.g., ants, wasps, etc). My past research in this area includes applications of models of wasp task allocation and wasp social hierarchy formation to industrial scheduling and coordination problems, as well as multirobot coordination in space exploration. I have also explored applications of swarming agents to data management and network monitoring on mobile ad hoc networks.
