Bio

Simona Doboli is a Professor of Computer Science at Hofstra University. She received her PhD from University of Cincinnati in 2001. Her research interests are in artificial intelligence, deep learning, neural cognitive modeling, creativity and computational neuroscience. Her recent work includes developing algorithms for automatic assessment of novelty in short text, studying interactions between group and individual level creativity, and developing neural cognitive models for idea generation processes. She has over 50 journal and conference publications. Her research was funded by NSF. She is an Associate Editor for the journal of Cognitive Systems Research since 2014. She was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks journal between 2005 and 2007. She is the tutorial chair for IJCNN 2019. She has been special session chair for IJCNN 2011 and the workshop chair for IJCNN 2013. She is a member of the program committee of IJCNN. She is currently the director of Computer Engineering program. She was the department chair between 2011 and 2016.
