Brief Curriculum Vitae

      Professor Radu Dogaru is currently with the Applied Electronics and Information Engineering Department of the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, where he teaches courses in Neural Networks, Computational Intelligence, Natural Computing, Reconfigurable Computing, Advanced Architectures for Artificial Intelligence. He also teaches a graduate course on Nonlinear Biodynamics at the Bioengineering Department of Polytechnic University of Bucharest. Since 2008 he is licensed to conduct research of doctoral students.
His main
scientific and research interests are in the areas of Natural Computing, Complex Dynamics, focusing on novel computing models inspired from nature, their applications and compact implementations. 

    He was a Visiting Professor at Chonbuk National University (Korea) in 2008,  is a Humboldt fellow (2005-2006), a recipient of the Fulbright award (1996) and a co-recipient of the Romanian Academy Award  - Tudor Tanasescu for research in computational intelligence for signal processing (received in 1997). Between 2002-2004 he was a recepient of a Volkswagen Stiftung research grant for a program aiming at novel natural computing architectures for compact signal compression and recognition. This project was completed in cooperation with the Institute of Microelectronic Systems (T.U. Darmstadt, Germany)
    Dr. Dogaru earned a PhD (Doctor degree) in Electronics (1996) at  Polytechnic University of Bucharest with a thesis focusing on neural networks architectures for VLSI implementation, is the recipient of a Graduation Certificate (1994) of the Tempus Postgraduate School in Computer Aided Electrical Engineering (VLSI design) and is the recipent of the M.Sc. degree (Diploma de Inginer) in Electronics and Communications (1987) from the same university.

    Between September 1996 and August 1998 he was a Postdoctoral Research Engineer with the Nonlinear Electronics Laboratory at University of California at Berkeley, in the first year being sponsored by a Fulbright award. He joined again the same laboratory between August 1999 and April 2000, being invited as a Visiting Research Scholar.
    He was also the recipient of several other research scholarships including a 6 months Tempus grant at I.N.P. Grenoble, France (1994) working at T.I.M.A. on a project dealing with neural architectures optimized for mixed signal implementation,  Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany – the Institute of  Microelectronic Systems, (October 1995, May 1996, December 1998, and December 2000) where he did research on various topics in the area of intelligent signal processing.
