BSc Computer Sc. (UCC)

Tom Carchrae

As an undergraduate I was a member of the UCC Constraint Processing Group. I then worked for a scheduling software company applying AI techniques to industrial scheduling problems. I am studying for my PhD under Prof. Beck and Prof. Freuder. I have looked at more efficient methods of storing higher consistency knowledge to ensure backtrack free search. My thesis is on reducing the required expertise to apply optimisation tools. My research interests include soft constraints and optimisation, local search, higher order consistency processing, and the art of modelling real world problems.
