|Michael Moffitt received the Best Student Paper award at the 16th International Conference on Automated Planning & Scheduling (ICAPS 2006), for the paper, Optimal Rectangle Packing: A Meta-CSP Approach, co-authored by Prof. Martha Pollack. |
Moffit is a PhD candidate in Computer Science and Engineering, working in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. His research interests include temporal reasoning, constraint satisfaction, combinatorial optimization, hybrid algorithms, overconstrained systems, preferences, planning, scheduling, and block packing. He is particularly interested in the relationship between these areas and neighboring disciplines, especially VLSI/CAD (e.g., floorplanning and cell placement) and Operations Research. See Moffit's web page for a list of his publications.
