STOEAN Catalin – Adjunct Research Associate Professor


Affiliation: Romanian Institute of Science and Technology, Cluj-Napoca, Romania / University of Craiova, Romania.

Cătălin is a former Fulbright scholar at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and two times a DAAD scholar at TU Dortmund University and Cologne University of Applied Sciences. His research interests involve the application of machine and deep learning approaches to real-world tasks. Examples of tasks are classification, regression, time series and the types of data varies from numerical, images to text. Areas of application where he was often involved range from medicine, chemistry to financial data and even text processing for extracting relevant information.

Fields of interest/specialization: Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Intelligence, Multimodal Optimization, Deep Learning.
