My thesis  covers the following research areas: black-box modelling of electronic circuits and systems including time-series modelling, function approximation methods, automated generation and selection of model inputs, stability of the models in circuit simulators, electromagnetic compatibility related models.
My current research interest are broader and in addition cover design of learning chips (on-chip artificial intelligence) and silicon neurons, short-term load forecasting (STLF), biomedical signal analysis and modelling, foreign exchange (FX) rate modelling and object recognition for electronic components.

The (incomplete) list of projects that I have contributed to is located here.
As a researcher, I have contributed to many international projects that gathered renowned corporations (Robert Bosch, British Telecom, Ericsson, ON Semiconductors, Triquint Semiconductors, Infineon Technologies, Cadence Design Systems and other) and renowned universities (University of Cambridge, K. U. Leuven and other).

The list of publications is available here.
I have published more than 30 papers in widely known scientific journals and international conferences. I am
serving as a reviewer for several renowned scientific journals, e.g. IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems (IF=4.4), Information Sciences (IF=3.9), IEEE Transactions on Power Systems (IF=3.5), IASC Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems and several IEEE conferences (ICECS, MELECON, EUROCON, MIPRO).
