Intelligent Systems: Modelling systems and buildings

Research areas:

My main research interests are in the areas of soft computing (fuzzy logic, neural networks, and genetic algorithms) and distributed systems (hierarchical, decentralised, and multilayer), as well as their application for modelling, simulation and control in different domains such as building management, traffic networks, and the environment.


I have published my major research results in a number of specialised scientific journals and at numerous international conferences. I am also the sole author of a book in the International Series in Intelligent Technologies of Kluwer Academic Publishers. I have been an invited referee of papers submitted for publication to the IEEE Transactions on Systems Man and Cybernetics, the IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Sets and Systems, the International Journal of Fuzzy Sets and Systems, the International Journal of Systems Science, the International Journal of Mechatronics, the International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, as well as of research proposals submitted to the Australian Research Council.

I have been a first prize winner for young researchers of the Bulgarian Union of Scientists, an invited contributor to the Scientific Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems, an invited lecturer to the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Soft Computing and Its Applications, and an invited presenter at the House of Commons Conference on Promoting Britain's Top Younger Researchers.

I am also an affiliate of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) and a member of the European Association of Operations Research (EURO).
