Sean Luke


Dr. Sean Luke is associate professor in computer science at the Volgenau School of Engineering. His major research area in the field of artificial intelligence has cultivated new methods for developing evolutionary computation (computer learning). As a director of the Evolutionary Computation Lab (ECLab) at the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University, his research involves the design and application of computational models of Darwinian-like models of evolution. Such models can be used to better understand existing evolutionary systems (such as bacterial resistance to penicillin) or can be used to make computer systems more robust, flexible and adaptive (such as a stock market trading program). In this lab, Luke examines information exchange relationships in the natural world for application opportunities in computer science. Additionally, as associate director at the George Mason Krasnow Institute’s Center for Social Complexity, Luke’s research and collaboration isolates new theories about human social interaction for use in multi-agent networks and computer reasoning. He has acted as PI on several grants, the most recent of which was funded by NSF and covered Online Training of Hierarchical Multirobot Teams.

Dr. Luke earned his BS in Computer Science at Brigham Young University and his PhD D in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) at University of Maryland.
