I’m Ian. I’m a swimmer, a salsero, and a programmer. I am doing a PhD program in Civil Engineering in University of Waterloo, Canada.

My passion is working on optimization algorithms with a focus on uncertainty. I’ve been working on computationally intensive problems in control and optimization.

I love learning new aspects of programming.

Since 2009, optimization has always been a major part of my work. I’ve created optimization web-apps (ResOS), initiated a business based on optimization (AnyPLOS) and published about optimization.

My optimization algorithms ranked first in both 2016 and 2018 black-box optimization competition.

Here is a place to share my work.


An #openaccess paper: Lost in #Optimisation of #Water #Distribution #Systems? An introduction and critical analysis of the global research effort over the last 30 years. Over 200 papers consulted. #Optimization #OR #systemsanalysis


Very happy to win 2 of the 3 multi-objective tracks in #BlackBoxOptimization Compettion 2018. Results were announced at @GECCO2018.



Happy to have my 2017 ASCE publication online. This work shows how computationally expensive yet efficient optimization works could potentially save us millions of dollars to design/extend reliable urban water distribution networks.
