About me

About me

Gabriela Ochoa is a Professor in Computing Science at the University of Stirling, Scotland. She received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Sussex. She worked in industry for five years before joining academia and has held faculty and research positions at the University Simon Bolivar, Venezuela and the University of Nottingham, UK. Her research interests lie in the foundations and application of evolutionary algorithms and heuristic search methods, with emphasis on autonomous search, hyper-heuristics, fitness landscape analysis and visualisation. She is associate editor of the Evolutionary Computation Journal, and the IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, as well as a member of the SIGEvo executive board. She has served as an organiser and/or program chair for several international events such as GECCO, PPSN, FOGA and CEC and was the Editor-in-Chief for GECCO 2017.
