Dr Eleni Mangina
Eleni Mangina carried out her PhD work at the University of Strathclyde (UK), Dept. of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, working on Agent-based applications for intelligent data interpretation under the supervision of Prof. Jim McDonald. The research area focused on software analysis, design and development of multi agent systems, which utilise different Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques (Knowledge based systems, Artificial Neural Networks, Case Based Reasoning systems and Model based Reasoning systems). Eleni holds an M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from the Department of Artificial Intelligence at University of Edinburgh in the UK and an MSc in Agricultural Science from Agricultural University of Athens in Greece. Eleni joined School of Computer Science (UCD) in 2002 and is an active researcher in the area of Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications in domains like engineering, power industry, bioinformatics, education, agriculture, supply chain management and music. She has a track record of around 100 publications in national and international peer reviewed workshops and conferences and international journals , including in IEEE and ACM and a number of book chapters and contributes as a committee member for reviews to many international conferences. Recent research focus includes Robotics, Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems and Virtual and Augmented Reality applications in education through simulation. Since 2012 Eleni has been actively involved in Computer Science international student recruitment in India and SE Asia.
