BiographyLuis Rueda obtained his Ph.D. in computer science from Carleton University, Canada, in 2002. He joined the School of Computer Science at the University of Windsor in Canada, in 2002 as an Assistant Professor. After spending two years at the University of Concepci\'on, Chile, he was appointed as an Associate Professor within the School of Computer Science and with the Pattern Recognition and Bioinformatics Lab at the University of Windsor. He has been recently promoted to Full Professor. His research interests are mainly focused on theoretical and applied machine learning and pattern recognition, mostly in the fields of transcriptomics, interactomics and genomics. His research has mostly been centered on microarray and next generation sequence data analysis, including image and signal processing, pattern analysis and gene selection, and on finding relevant patterns in prediction of protein-protein interactions and stability of protein complexes, including domains, short linear motifs and complex types. Luis Rueda holds three patents on data encryption, secrecy and stealth. He has published more than 100 publications in prestigious journals and conferences in machine learning and bioinformatics. He has participated in editorial and technical committees for conferences and journals. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, and a Member of the Association for Computing Machinery and the International Society for Computational Biology.
