  • Research Interests:
    • His research interest is decision analysis and intelligent decision support systems based on probabilistic graphical models (influence diagrams and bayesian networks) that perform knowledge acquisition in huge decision tables, knowledge discovery and data mining on models output for explanation synthesis and sensitivity analysis.
    • He is interested in optimization based on evolutionary algorithms and classifications models. His primary applications are Social Networks Analysis, Air Traffic Management (ATM), Large Assignment Problems under general constrains.
    • Also his interests are centered around machine learning algorithms, particularly those related to novelty detection for data streams with concept drift capabilities and dynamic feature subset selection. His primary applications are in the fields of structural health monitoring, rotodynamic systems, and the machine tool industry, with a strong emphasis on the Industrie 4.0
    • He is collaborating in modelization of quality of service and quality of life on social service environmentsin colaboration with several Spanish Foundations.
    • His articles have appeared in various academic journals including: Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Journal of Operational Research, Computers & Operations Research, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Decision Support Systems, Expert Systems with Applications, Medical Decision Making.
