Professor Seyedali Mirjalili (Ali) is the founding director of the Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Optimization at Torrens University Australia. He is internationally recognized for his advances in Optimization and Swarm Intelligence, including the first set of algorithms from a synthetic intelligence standpoint - a radical departure from how natural systems are typically understood - and a systematic design framework to reliably benchmark, evaluate, and propose computationally cheap robust optimization algorithms.
Ali has published over 300 publications with over 40,000 citations and an H-index of 70. As the most cited researcher in Robust Optimization, he has been on the list of 1% highly-cited researchers and named as one of the most influential researchers in the world by Web of Science for three consecutive years since 2019. In 2020, he was ranked 21st across all disciplines and 4th in Artificial Intelligence & Image Processing in the Stanford University’s list of World’s Top Scientists. In 2021, The Australian newspaper named him as the top researcher in Australia in three fields of Artificial Intelligence, Evolutionary Computation, and Fuzzy Systems. Ali is a senior member of IEEE and an associate editor of several AI journals including Neurocomputing, Applied Soft Computing, Advances in Engineering Software, Computers in Biology and Medicine, Healthcare Analytics, Applied Intelligence, and IEEE Access. His research interests include Optimization, Swarm Intelligence, Evolutionary Algorithms, and Machine Learning.
