Dr Ali Husseinzadeh Kashan holds degrees in Industrial Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Polytechnique of Tehran), Iran. He worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems with the Financial support of Iran National Elite foundations. Dr Kashan is currently an associate professor in the Faculty of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Tarbiat Modares University and has been active in applied optimization since 2004. His research focuses on modeling and solving hard combinatorial optimization problems in areas such as logistics and supply networks, revenue management and pricing, resource scheduling, grouping problems, financial engineering, etc. As solution methodologies for real-world engineering design problems, he has introduced several intelligent optimization procedures, which inspire from natural phenomena, such as League Championship Algorithm (LCA), Optics Inspired Optimization (OIO), Find-Fix-Finish-Exploit-Analyze (F3EA) metaheuristic algorithm and Grouping Evolution Strategies (GES). Dr Kashan has published over 120 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, and has served as a referee for several outstanding journals such as: IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computations, Omega, Computers Operations Research, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Computers Industrial Engineering, International Journal of Production Research, Information Sciences, Applied Soft Computing, Ecological Informatics, Engineering Optimization, Optimal Control and Applications etc. He has received several awards from Iran National Elite Foundation, and in 2016 he was honored by the Academy of Sciences of Iran as the outstanding young scientist of Industrial Engineering.
