    About Mike Riley

    Dr. Mike Riley is a Senior Lecturer at the Lincoln School of Engineering. His research interests involve multi-objective optimization algorithms and response surface methodology (RSM). RSM, also known as metamodeling,  mimics the often complex underlying behaviour of expensive simulation models or sparse real-world data. These models can be exploited for optimization, design space exploration, sensitivity analysis, parametric studies and model order reduction. These approaches have found applications as diverse as health care, energy management, optimal design, biochemistry, Formula 1 and farming. Since starting at the University of Lincoln in 2011, Dr Mike Riley has worked with Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery and Napier Turbochargers and collaborates with research partners in the UK and overseas.
