Crina Grosan

Summary

crina-grosan
I am a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Brunel University London. I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science and my PhD in Artificial Intelligence from Babes-Bolyai University in Romania and moved to Brunel as a research fellow before becoming an academic staff member in the same department.

Research area(s)

My research background is in artificial intelligence and machine learning, with applications ranging from medicine and pharmacy to mathematics and economics. My current research is primarily focused on the development of artificial intelligence (AI) methods and algorithms for large scale optimisation, systems of equations, data analysis, and networks, with a recent interest is in systems and synthetic biology approaches (this involves a combinatorial approach of molecular biology, bioinformatics, structural biology, functional genomics and modelling). I have extensively used and developed machine learning methods as well as ensembles or hybrids of these methods by combining them in various ways and for various applications.
