Since 2001, he works at the Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute

Ph.D. Coello has pioneered an area of ​​computing known today as “multi-objective evolutionary optimization”, which focuses on solving problems with two or more objective functions (usually in conflict with each other) using biologically inspired algorithms. . His work has mainly revolved around the design of algorithms, several of which have been used to solve real-world problems in countries such as the United States, Colombia, Chile, and Cuba.

Ph.D. Coello has more than 480 publications, which to date report more than 51,300 citations in Google Scholar (its h-index is 90). He has directed 74 theses to date (including 21 doctorates), several of which have received awards. He is also associate editor of 8 international journals, including the 2 most important in his area, and belongs to the editorial committee of 4 more magazines.

Ph.D. Coello is the youngest computer scientist to have reached level 3 of the National System of Researchers (SNI) in area VII (at 37 years of age), and since 2010, he is a Cinvestav 3F Researcher (the highest possible category in CINVESTAV -IPN). There are only 31 researchers (out of 645 that CINVESTAV-IPN has) who hold this category.

Ph.D. Coello received the 2007 National Research Award in “exact sciences” from the Mexican Academy of Sciences, being, to date, the only computer scientist who has received this important distinction since it was instituted in 1961.

Ph.D. Coello received the 2013 IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award for “pioneering contributions to single- and multi-objective optimization using bio-inspired metaheuristics,” making him the first Latin American to receive this important award. He also received the 2012 Scopus México Award, in the Engineering area, for his high number of publications and citations in the last 5 years, becoming the first computer scientist to receive this distinction, since it was instituted in Mexico in 2007 The then president Felipe Calderón Hinojosa also received the 2012 National Prize for Sciences and Arts, in the area of ​​Physical-Mathematical and Natural Sciences. This is the highest award given by our government to a scientist and the Ph.D. Coello was only the second computologist to receive it in the 67-year history of the award, and he was also the first to obtain it in exact sciences. In December 2012 he received the National Prize for Socio-Humanistic, Scientific and Technological Research 2012 from the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí. He also received the 2016 The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) Award in “Engineering Sciences” for “his pioneering contributions to the development of new algorithms based on bio-inspired metaheuristics to solve single-objective and multi-objective optimization problems.” Luis Elizondo 2019 in the Scientific and Technological Category.
