- Dhish obtained his Ph.D in Evolutionary Many-objective Optimization (2008), under the supervision of Shanti Swaroop Bhatnagar Awardee Prof. Kalyanmoy Deb, IIT Kanpur. In MCDM Conference, Finland, 2011, Dhish's Ph.d was adjudged as one of the three most impactful Ph.Ds in the world, during 2007-11, in the area of Evolutionary Multi-objective Optimization and Multi-criterion Decision Making. Dhish brings on board his work-experience in the United Kingdom, for almost half-a-decade, where he worked with universities like Cranfield and Bath, in collaboration with companies like British Aerospace Systems, Hewlett Packard, and Airbus. The focus of his research has been two fold. At a fundamental level, his research has focused on facilitating a better understanding of highly constrained practical optimization problems, characterized by high degree of non-linearity and several (many) conflicting objectives. In that, machine learning techniques have been integrated with evolutionary algorithms to rank the objectives and also the constraints by order of their importance, to facilitate a decision support for a given problem. At the applied level, his research focus has been on demonstrating the utility of the self-developed tools and techniques on a wide range of real-world: engineering design, business-process, and multi-disciplinary optimization & multi-criterion decision making problems.
