A glint about my profile !

My name is Zaineb Chelly Dagdia. I am currently an Associate Professor at the Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines University / Paris-Saclay, France, and part of the Data and Algorithms for an Intelligent and Sustainable City Laboratory.

I received my MSc. and Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Tunis (ISG-Campus), Tunisia, in 2010 and 2014, respectively. After that, I hold the position of a Marie Skłodowska Curie Research Fellow (MSCA-IF-2015-EF, Project No. 702527) at Aberystwyth University, UK (03/2017-02/2019). I have strong experience in working in European research projects (H2020, FP7, etc.), in academic-industry collaboration, technology transfer, and project management. Just after my MSCA fellowship, I joined INRIA (03/2019) as an R&D Development Technical Project Manager to manage an H2020 ICT RIA project (COMPRISE, Project No. 825081).

My research interests include different aspects of Artificial Intelligence. I write on Machine Learning, Data Mining and Data Analytics, Evolutionary Algorithms, and Artificial Immune Systems (AIS), Big Data, and Uncertainty Theories, with a special focus on real world application - mainly in the medical domain and cyber-security. My career publications include over 40 journal papers (SCI indexed), refereed and ranked conference proceedings papers and book chapters. I am a reviewer for several referred journals such as IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS, SWARM AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION and APPLIED SOFT COMPUTING. I am also a regular program committee member and a reviewer in several referred international conferences such as the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation, the ACM Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference, and the ACS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems and Applications.

I was awarded the Young Researcher First Price (IEEE EHB’2013), the ACM-W Award, the Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual European Fellowship and the Best Reviewer Award (iCDEc 2018). I also act as a Marie Sklodowska Curie Ambassador, selected as a Female Scientist Role Model, and selected to be among the Heidelberg-Laureate-Forum (HLF) most qualified young researchers, and among the 30 MSC talented researchers to communicate my research at the Falling Walls Labs 2018 organized by the European Commission (EC). I am also involved in several EC dissemination activities as I was invited as a panelist to the parlamentarium for a debate, I write blogs for the MSCA Learning Hub, and contributed to the "science is wonderful event 2018" organized by the EC.
