Mehmet Emin Aydin is Lecturer in Department of Computer Science and Technology of the University of Bedfordshire. After completing his PhD, he has worked on a research project as a research fellow in the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, from September 1998 to September 1999. The main aim of the project was to investigate the performance of a particular framework of multi agent systems implementing various parallel metaheuristics to solve combinatorial optimisation problems. He has continued researching on parallel and distributed evolutionary algorithms and multi-agent systems in London South Bank University from January 2001 to September 2003 working on the EU funded research project. From November 2003 to July 2004, he has worked on another research project at University of the West of England as a research fellow investigating the viability of distributed problem solvers via web services. He joined Department of Computing and Information Systems of the University of Bedfordshire in March 2006 to research on planning and optimisation of mobile networks. He is currently conducting research on grid-enabled metaheuristics for mobile network planning and optimisation problems. His research interests include grid-enabled/ parallel and distributed metaheuristics, network planning and optimization, combinatorial optimization, evolutionary computation and intelligent agents and multi agent systems. He has conducted guest editorial of the special issue on Advances in Evolutionary Computation for Manufacturing and Design Problems for International Journal of Production Research, which has recently published as Vol.44 Is. 22. He has also conducted guest editorial of European Journal of Industrial Engineering for a special issue on \Emergent Computing for Services Management\, which has been recently published as Vol:3, Is. 4. In addition to the membership of advisory committee of many international conferences, he is a member of editorial board of European Journal of Industrial Engineering (EJIE). He is currently a member of The OR Society UK, ACM and IEEE Computer Society He has published about 20 peer-reviewed journal papers and more than 30 refereed conferences. He has also written 4 book chapters.
