Professor Peter Stuckey

Peter Stuckey from Monash University has a world-leading research program in constraint programming. He led the G12 project, one of the largest projects at NICTA, peaking at 25 researchers, culminating in the Opturion spinout company, delivering optimisation solutions to commercial customers. He has been involved in 3 ARC Linkage Projects and other industry contract research projects, working in Energy, Security, Resources and Transport. His research expertise in optimisation broadly covers modelling languages and model transformation, solving using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Operations Research (OR) technology, and using machine learning methods in concert with optimisation. For the global influence and uptake of his research, he was awarded the 2010 Google Australia Eureka Prize for Innovation in Computer Science and honoured in 2019 with a Fellowship of the prestigious Association for AI Advancement.
