George Evers received the Master of Science in Engineering with an electrical concentration from The University of Texas – Pan American (UTPA) and the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics cum laude with a physics minor and secondary teaching certificate from Texas A&M University – Kingsville (TAMUK).  At UTPA, he served as a teaching assistant for the department of electrical engineering.  At TAMUK, he served as president of the local chapter of the Society of Physics Students; taught physics labs from age 18; and enjoyed access to professors for conversation, chess, and hang gliding.

Since receiving his bachelor’s, he has primarily enjoyed working abroad — staying long enough to appreciate the cultures and languages.  He enjoys seeing the ways in which various cultures have evolved different approaches to life’s basic challenges and inferring the resulting strengths and weaknesses of each approach.

For his master’s, he enjoyed tackling the stagnation problem of PSO and inferring the parallels between the social-based algorithm and society – such as that an inherently diverse population and slow rate of agreement between groups may help avoid premature convergence to sub-optimal solutions, though appearing unfruitful in the short-term.
