Susan Stepney

Susan Stepney is Professor of Computer Science at the University of York, and Director of the York Centre for Complex Systems Analysis. Her main research areas are in Unconventional Computation, in simulating Complex Systems, and in Artificial Chemistries. Her current research is into computational systems that can generate unbounded novelty. Two research projects in this area are: the EvoEvo (Evolution of Evolution) EU FET project, developing novel evolutionary algorithms based on inspiration from bacterial and virus evolution; Subsymbolic Artificial Chemistries, developing novel complex computational systems based on inspiration from molecular chemistry.
