Dr Patrick Mills

Patrick Mills was a PhD student and Senior Research Officer in the constraint satisfaction research Group, Department of Computer Science, University of Essex.

Patrick has broad knowledge in computer science. He is an expert in stochastic search, optimisation, system engineering and computational finance.

In his PhD, Patrick extended the Guilded Local Search algorithm. The Extended Guided Local Search (EGLS) algorithm is more effective and less sensitive to its parameter setting. EGLS is incorporated in the ZDC system, which is developed in the Computer-aided Constraint Programming Project.
