Combinatorial search problems in artificial intelligence.
Current Research Projects include :
Integrating modern tools for computational group theory with constraint programming tools to solve difficult problems in areas such as scheduling and timetabling.
This is leading to exciting interdisciplinary research between Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics.
