IBM Research Europe - Ireland Dublin, Ireland


I am a research scientist at the IBM Research Europe (Dublin Research Lab) working in the areas of analytics, datamining, machine learning, reinforcement learning, automated decisions, and automated AI. More information of my work in automated AI (AutoMLPipeline.jl and Lale.jl) can be found in IBM Research main page.

Education and Training

I finished my Doctor of Engineering degree from the Toyohashi University of Technology in Japan (2005). I have a Master's degree in Computer Science majoring in Artificial Intelligence (Ateneo de Manila University, 1995) and a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics (cum laude, valedictorian) at the University of the Philippines in the Visayas (1991).

I used to work as a technical staff for two years in the Neuroinformatics Lab of RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan. I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the National University of Singapore and the National Neuroscience Institute working on diverse topics such as context-aware reasoning, datamining models for activity recognition in smarthome environment, detecting biomarkers for Parkinson's Disease by image processing of fMRI and DTI images, and automated diagnosis of movement disorder for intelligent healthcare. Moreover, I held an Asst. Professorship for a total of 6 years in the University of the Philippines and Ateneo de Manila University. In 2007, I was awarded the Outstanding Young Scientists in Information and Computer Science by the Department of Science and Technology (Philippines).
