Research profile

Elena Mocanu is a researcher in Machine Learning and Autonomous Systems within the Control System Technology group, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) since February 2018.

Academic background

Elena Mocanu received her B.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Physics from Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania, in 2004. After four years as mathematics and physics teacher at high-school level, Elena moved to the university. She has been an Assistant Lecturer within the Department of Information Technology, University of Bucharest, Romania from September 2008 to January 2011. In parallel, in 2009 she started a master program in Theoretical Physics. In 2011 she obtained the M.Sc. degree with specialization in Quantum Transport from University of Bucharest, Romania.

In January 2011, Elena moved from Romania to Netherlands. She obtained the M.Sc. degree in Operations Research from Maastricht University, The Netherlands, in 2013. In the last year of her master program, she did a six months Internship at Mastricht University on bioinformatics data analytics research and a six months graduation project at NXP Semiconductors, Eindhoven. In her master thesis she has investigated deep learning methods for "People detection for building automation".

In October 2013, Elena started her PhD research in Machine Learning and Smart Grids at TU/e. In January 2015 she performed a short research visit at the Technical University of Denmark and, from January to April 2016 she was a visiting researcher at University of Texas at Austin, USA.
