Doctor Ciprian Zavoianu

Biography I am a Research Fellow in the School of Computing Science and Digital Media and my general research interests for the past 10+ years have included theoretical and practical concepts of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In particular, my research is primarily concerned with evolutionary computation algorithms and their application on complex real-world problems that have solutions predicated on combining simulation, optimization and data-driven modelling.

I earned my PhD in Computer Science in 2015 from the Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) in Austria with a thesis focused on developing and enhancing multi-objective evolutionary algorithms used for solving computationally-intensive optimization problems.

Before joining the RGU in 2019, I worked as a university assistant & postdoc researcher at the JKU for approx. 4 years. While this position entailed regular teaching activities for computer science and mathematics subjects, it also enabled me to apply and build upon my PhD research as I actively contributed to three large (EUR 2mil+) interdisciplinary industrial research projects funded by the FFG (the Austrian Research Promotion Agency).
