Cosmin started programming on a ZX Spectrum clone when he was 8. Self taught, he has been consulting in several areas of software engineering, from programming to architecture, and web development for over 10 years. He has a MSc in Intelligent Technologies from Birkbeck where he took a particular interest in in artificial neural networks and evolutionary algorithms. Some of his industry roles include data analyst (on a consulting basis) for Tesco and Schroders. Currently he is working towards a hybrid PhD which bridges the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck; the PhD is focused on developing novel deep learning algorithms that model certain cognitive and behavioural processes. He is also an active member of the Centre for Brain & Cognitive Development and Birkbeck Babylab where he applies state of the art machine learning on electroencephalogram data.
