Dr. Florian Miksch, DCS visiting professor.

Dr. Florian Miksch, DCS visiting professor.

The visiting professor of the Department of Computer Science, Dr. Florian Miksch, will begin his bimonthly talks entitled “Lecture Series on Modelling and Simulation: Theory and Applications” starting 11 December 2013. The talk tomorrow will be at 4-5 PM at the UP Cebu AVR2.

Dr. Miksch is a professor from Vienna University of Technology. He is active in the fields of modelling and simulation, data mining, and project management. His PhD dissertation is entitled “Mathematical Modelling for New Insights into Epidemics by Herd Immunity and Serotype Shift”.

Among the recent published works he co-authored are “Hybrid Combination and Modular Modelling Techniques in Health Technology Assessment – An Example Based Explanation for Communicable Diseases”, “Analysis and comparison of different modelling approaches based on an SIS epidemic”, and “Modular modelling and hybrid combination in health technology assessment models – examples and technology”.
