Peter John Fleming is a Professor of Industrial Systems and Control in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering and till June 2012, He was the Director of the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre for Control and Systems Engineering at the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom. He works in the field of control & systems engineering and is known for his work on evolutionary computation applied to systems engineering. Fleming is Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Systems Science.
Fleming's primary area of research involves the development of evolutionary algorithms, including genetic algorithm for multi-objective optimization. He also works in the area of control & systems engineering. He has authored about 400 research publications, including six books. His research interests have led to the development of close links with a variety of industries in sectors such as automotive, aerospace, power generation, food processing, pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing. Two of his most cited article are:
- Genetic Algorithms for Multiobjective Optimization: Formulation, Discussion and Generalization, with Carlos M. Fonseca, in Genetic Algorithm: Proceedings of the fifth international conference, San Mareo, CA, July 1993.
- An Overview of Evolutionary Algorithms in Multiobjective Optimization, with Carlos M. Fonseca, Evolutionary Computation, MIT Press, 1995.
He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering since 2005, a Fellow of the International Federation of Automatic Control since 2009, a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering Technology, and a Fellow of the Institute of Measurement and Control.
