I work on older and newer technologies across multiple platforms, browsers, programming languages. I have a degree in Computer Engineering with emphasis in Computational Intelligence. I have publications i Evolvable Hardware and Computational Intelligence. I have a passion for continuously learning & perfecting new things. I am also interested in cyber security and forensics. I attend/watch security conferences and have a home computer lab to help extend my security knowledge. I help development in online open source projects. I work on multiple side projects (I am bartering my IT skills with a Dentist Office for free dentistry, I help work on side projects with Real Estate Companies and other small businesses. I bartered web site development with https://www.theeyebar.com for discounted glasses. Worked on a side project for The Eye Bar to utilize web cams to measure online customers' pupil distance.)

    • Published a paper in the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation

    • Researched as an undergraduate student in a research lab filled with graduate students

    • Researched in optimizing combination logic circuit design

    • Worked on a Super Computer at the University of Missouri-Rolla. Our research group obtained NSF funding for our projects

    • Was 1 of 50 researchers in the world working in the field of Evolvable Hardware

    • Worked on evolving FPGA circuits that would reprogram their logic gates, positions, and connections to maintain feasible circuits, decrease power consumption, and reprogram for damaged circuit parts

    • Research was part of a bigger project for NASA to design evolvable satellites to reconfigure and start working again when nuclear space particles would destroy circuit parts. This would save money for NASA to decrease expensive missions to space to fix and replace satellites.

  • Evolving Combinational Logic Circuits Using a Hybrid Quantum Evolution and Particle Swarm Inspired Algorithm , NASA/DoD Conference on Evolvable Hardware

    Published on: Jan 01, 2005

    New algorithm created that was inspired from quantum evolution and particle swarm optimization (QEPSO). The new algorithm is tested against the creation of feasible combinational logic circuits with minimal gates. The algorithm is compared against other particle swarm algorithms, genetic algorims, and other evolutionary algorithms.

  • Evolving Digital Circuits Using Hybrid Particle Swarm Optimization and Differential Evolution , International Journal of Neural Systems

    Published on: Jan 01, 2006

    Research in the evolution of combinational logic circuits with a new hybrid algorithm known as the Differential Evolution Particle Swarm Optimization (DEPSO). The particle swarm (PSO) algorithm is represented by a 3-integer approach. A hybrid, multi-objective fitness function is coined to achieve two goals. The first is to evolve combinational logic circuits with 100% functionality. The second is to minimize the number of logic gates needed to realize the feasible circuits. Comparisons of the algorithm is made to conventional Karnaugh map and evolvable hardware techniques such as genetic algorithms, modified particle swarm (MPSO), and differential evolution.

  • Emprical Study of an Unconstrained Modified Particle Swarm Optimization , IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation

    Published on: Jan 01, 2006

    An unconstrained modified particle swarm optimization (UMPSO) algorithm is introduced and studied empirically. Four well-known benchmark functions, with asymmetric intial position values, are used as testing functions for the UMPSO algorithm. The UMPSO differs from the canonical PSO in which the velocity and position parameters areunconstrained, an additional strategic component is added, and the social component term has been modified. The UMPSO is compared to multiple other PSO algorithms to show that UMPSO with no maximum/minimum velocity and position performs better for the Sphere, Rosenbrock, Rastrigrin, and Griewank benchmark functions.
