Topic: Optimization of the execution of tasks on distributed networks

Abstract: My current research interests include the study of meta-heuristics applied to solve optimization problems in distributed wireless networks. Specifically, I am interested in formulating multi-objective problems, which allow optimizing multiple tasks trying to find a trade-off between the execution time of tasks and resources of the network. For this purposes meta-heuristics such as genetic algorithms, swarm intelligence and other biological techniques are used.
