Dr. Elpiniki I. Papageorgiou is Ass. Professor at the Dept. of Computer Engineering of the Technological Education Institute (TEI) of Central Greece, Lamia, Greece. She received her B.Sc. degree in Physics in 1997 from the University of Patras, Greece, with honor. In July 2000, she received her M.Sc. degree in Medical Physics with honors from the University of Patras and in September 2004 her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, from the same University.
She has been working for over thirteen years as researcher in several research projects related with the development of novel computational intelligence methodologies for decision support systems, intelligent algorithms for decision making, data analysis and mining and expert systems. She has been actively involved in several research projects, European and National R&D. Recently she has worked in four EU-funded projects, see: FP7-ICT-2013-11 ISS-EWATUS, FP7-ICT-2011 USEFIL,FP7-ICT-2007-1 DEBUGIT,FP6-SESAME, focused on the development of decision support systems using intelligent/cognitive methodologies, fuzzy cognitive maps and data mining algorithms.Also,her strong relationship with external funding bodies and especially EU and national funding environments, gave her an experience in managing research teams in different application domain projects.
She is author and co-author of more than 148 publications in journals, conference papers and book chapters.56 of them are in journals with high Impact factors, and has more than 1486 citations from independent researchers (h-index=19 in scopus and h-index=26 in googlescholar). Dr. Elpiniki Papageorgiou is the Editor of the Springer book “Fuzzy Cognitive Maps for Applied Sciences and Engineering - from fundamentals to extensions and learning algorithms”,Intelligent Systems Reference Library 54, Springer 2014. Her research interests include Expert systems, Fuzzy cognitive maps, Soft computing, Decision support systems, Computational Intelligent algorithms, Data mining and Machine learning.
