Biography

Uzay Kaymak received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering, the Degree of Chartered Designer in information technology, and the Ph.D. degree in control engineering from the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 1992, 1995, and 1998, respectively. He has held various positions at Shell International Exploration and Production, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and Salford University in United Kingdom. He is currently professor of information systems at the Information Systems (IS) Group of the School of Industrial Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology.

Uzay Kaymak’s research is on intelligent decision support systems, data and process mining and computational modelling methods. He has worked on the development of computational intelligence methods for decision models in which linguistic information, represented either as declarative linguistic rules derived from experts or obtained through natural language processing, is combined with numerical information that is extracted from data by computational and machine learning methods. Fuzzy set theory is at the basis of such models. The resulting (adaptive) decision support systems have been used in various fields such as financial decision making, economic analysis and clinical decision support. Prof. Kaymak is an internationally acknowledged researcher, who has (co)-authored more than 250 scientific publications in the fields of intelligent systems, computerized decision support and computational intelligence. He is a board member of the Clinical Informatics study program (two-year post-master PDEng study) of TU/e and a member of the program and/or organization committee of multiple international conferences. He also holds a visiting professor position at the Zhejiang University, China.
