FORE Systems Professor of Computational Biology and Machine Learning, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
Ziv Bar-Joseph is a FORE Systems Professor of Computer Science at the Machine Learning Department and the Computational Biology Department which are part of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the recipient of the 2012 Overton Prize in computational biology, which is rated by the MIT peers as one of the Top 3 prizes in the field of AI and deep learning. And the Winner of NSF CAREER Award.
His primary research areas are computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Machine learning. Heading the Systems Biology Group at the School of Computer Science at CMU. Their group develops computational methods for understanding the interactions, dynamics and conservation of complex biological systems. Their work addresses issues ranging from the experimental design level to the systems biology level. He is also interested in how shared principles between computation and biology can be used to improve our understanding of both fields. They are looking at algorithms used by nature to see if they can obtain new ideas on how to design better algorithms for distributed computing systems while at the same time infer new insights regarding information processing in biology.
The total number of citations of his paper exceeds 12900 times with a H index of 52.
