Principal Academic in Data Science, Bournemouth University

Marcin Budka has received his dual BA+MA degree in finance and banking from the University of Economics, Katowice, Poland, in 2003, BSc in computer science from University of Silesia, Poland, in 2005 and PhD in computational intelligence from Bournemouth University, UK, in 2010, where he currently holds the Lecturer in Computational Intelligence position. His current research interests include Information Theoretic Learning, metalearning, adaptive systems, ensemble models and complex networked systems with focus on evolution and dynamics of social networks.

Research

My research interests lie in a broadly understood field of machine learning, data mining, predictive modelling and computational intelligence, with a particular focus on practical applications. Recently I have also developed an interest in the area of complex, evolving networked systems, which appear as a very attractive and relatively little explored practical application for advanced predictive models.

I am currently involved in the EU-funded INFER project (Computational Intelligence Platform for Evolving and Robust Predictive Systems) and also investigating the topic of diffusion in complex networks.
