Michael Kirley

 

Associate Professor Michael Kirley is an academic in the School of Computing and Information Systems. Michael's primary research interests encapsulate artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques.

Michael is the Co-Director of the Melbourne Centre for Data Science .

Michael's main scientific contributions are in two areas: First, in the analysis and design of evolutionary algorithms; including exploratory landscape analysis with applications in large-scale, open and dynamic environments. Second, developing new mechanisms and algorithms, inspired by evolutionary game theory, to explore the evolution of social behaviours such as cooperation and cultural dynamics in complex social-ecological systems.

Michael has received multiple awards for excellence in both teaching and research:
  • Excellence in Research 2009, Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, The University of Melbourne
  • Excellence in Teaching 2011, Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, The University of Melbourne
