Michał J. Dąbrowski, PhD

member

Michał is an Assistant Professor in the IPI PAN and also head of ZBO. He is a holder of MS degrees of the Faculty of Agriculture and Biology of the Agricultural University of Warsaw, where he gained knowledge in zoology and ecology, with emphasis on conservation biology of vertebrates. In 2005 he joined the Museum & Institute of Zoology PhD program in ecology and population genetics of small mammals. He obtained PhD degree in biological sciences in 2010. He contributed to and was principal investigator in several scientific projects in evolutionary and behavioral ecology as well as molecular ecology and philogeography. In 2012 he started his two year Postdoc Fellowship at the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University, where his research interests turned to the field of human genetics, epigenetics as well as molecular genetic laboratory work and bioinformatics. His main current interest is on epigenetic marks that significantly contribute to various gene expression regulation levels. Since 2016 he has been a full time co-investigator in the multidisciplinary project “Atlas of brain regulatory regions and regulatory networks - a novel systems biology approach to pathogenesis of selected neurological disorders”.

Jacek Koronacki, Professor, PhD, D.Sc. (Hab.)

member

Jacek is a recognized authority on advanced statistical analysis and machine learning, and possesses more than 30 years of experience in these fields of research and development. His interests include bioinformatics, and quality control. He is the author or co-author of over 60 publications, including 6 books. His involvement in bioinformatics is focused on the analysis of high-dimensional (e.g., genomic and proteomic) data. In the early 2000s, he was involved as Head of statistical group in several projects to develop decision support (or the like) systems, e.g., for Bank of America, Ford Motor Co. and Air Force Academy at Dęblin, Poland. In addition to his involvement in R&D, he has taught extensively in Poland and elsewhere – in USA (Rice University and Ohio State University), Australia (The University of New South Wales) and Argentina (The National University of San Luis). He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications (Great Britain). He is Senior Editor of International Journal of Data Mining, Modeling and Management and an Editorial Board member of Opuscula Mathematica and Mathematica Applicanda.

Michał Dramiński, PhD

member

Michał is an Assistant in the IPI PAN. In 2001 He graduated (M.Sc.) with honors from Warsaw University of Technology and then he started his professional career as a visiting researcher at George Mayson University where he worked with prof. Ryszard Michalski on AQ algorithm and INLEN/VINLEN data mining systems. In 2008, at IPI PAN, he successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis about rule induction and feature selection from high dimensional data. Michał is an author of over 30 scientific publications and a few algorithms (e.g. MCFS-ID, ADX). The main areas of his expertise are: classification, feature selection, clustering, text mining/NLP (NEKST), fraud detection, time series analysis, parallel computing and BIG DATA. He has 16th years experience in machine learning and artificial intelligence earned during scientific work as well as business career. He was a co-investigator and principal investigator in data science projects that were run by several consulting and software companies: NuTech Solutions (Data Mining Specialist), Netezza (Senior Data Analysis Lead), and IBM (Netezza Analytics Manager). Since 2008 he has held the position of Data Science Project Manager at iQor Polska and he is responsible for leading and managing various Data Science projects.

Magdalena Mozolewska, PhD

member

Magdalena is an Assistant Professor in the IPI PAN. She obtained BS in Environmental Protection in 2009, BS in Biotechnology in 2012, MS in Chemistry in 2011 and PhD degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry, her specialty area being chemoinformatics.
