    Personal profile


    Felipe Campelo is a Lecturer in Computer Science at Aston University, where he currently teaches Data Mining and Data Science Programming.

    After graduating as an Electrical Engineer from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG, Brazil) in 2003, Felipe received a Monbusho scholarship from the Japanese government to pursue his postgraduate studies in Hokkaido University, Japan, where he received first his M.Sc. (Information Science and Technology, 2006) and then his Ph.D. (Systems Science and Informatics, 2009). He then held a postdoctoral position at UFMG between 2009-10, before joining their Department of Electrical Engineering in August 2010. While at UFMG he supervised over 15 postgraduate students and acted as deputy head of department between 2013 and 2017.

    Research Interests

    Dr. Campelo's current research focuses on the development of integrated solution frameworks for data analytics, seamlessly connecting data mining, statistical modelling, multi-objective optimisation and decision making for the solution of a variety of problems in science and engineering. These include applications in areas as diverse as optimisation of electromagnetic devices, reliability modelling and optimisation of electrical power distribution systems, transportation logistics, and the analysis and modelling of biological sequence and signals data. He is also involved with the development of methodologically and statistically sound protocols for the experimental comparison of optimisation and machine learning algorithms.
