Short Bio: Hadi Fanaee-T is an assistant professor of data mining at Halmstad University, Sweden. He completed his PhD (with distinction) in Computer Science, under supervision of Professor Joao Gama at the Faculty of Science of University of Porto, Portugal in November 2015. He was the finalist in ERCIM Cor Baayen Young Researcher Award 2017. Prior to this position he was a postdoctoral fellow at the department of biostatistics, University of Oslo, Norway, and also worked as a postdoctoral researcher in European FP7 Project "MAESTRA" at INESC TEC research institute, Portugal. His main research interests are interdisciplinary applications of tensor decompositions, data fusion, anomaly/event detection and spatiotemporal data mining. He is the first-author of several journal and conference papers. He has served as a PC member to over 20 prestigious conferences (e.g. IJCAI, AAAI, ECML-PKDD, ISMIS, ACM SAC, IEEE DSAA, etc.) and also reviewer to several high-impact journals (e.g. TDKE, TKDD, DAMI, ML, KAIS, KBS, CSUR). Dr. Fanaee was an invited talk at the summer school on "mining big and complex data" held in Ohrid, Macedonia, September 2016 (watch in videolectures) . He is co-advising three PhD students, and a Master's student. He also concluded the supervision of a visiting PhD student, and a research fellow. He is leading the SimTensor project.
