Prof. Dr. Ricardo Cerri obtained his P.hD in Computer Science and Computational Mathematics from University of São Paulo (ICMC/USP/Brazil), working with Neural Networks and Genetic Algorithms for Hierarchical and Multi-label Problems. During his P.hD., he had a long research stay at Universities of Surrey and Kent, both in United Kingdom. His P.hD Thesis was the 2nd Best PhD Thesis in the Brazilian Contest of Artificial Intelligence Thesis promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (2014). He was also author of the student best paper on the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (2013).  He has experience working mainly with Bioinformatics and Machine Learning, focusing on advanced methods for data classification, such as multi-output and structured learning. Currently he holds the position of Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science from Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar/Brazil), leading the Bioinformatics and Machine Learning research group (BioMal - He is also a researcher on Productivity at CNPq - Level 2. Dr. Cerri has ongoing international collaborations with partners from University of Kent (UK), University of Surrey (UK), University of Nottingham (UK), University of Porto (Portugal), and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium), and acts as program chair of different conferences and workshops in Brazil. Currently he is in a sabbatical year doing a postdoctoral research at the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support (LIAAD), working with multi-output learning in data streams.
