Welcome to my website! My name is Michael Georgiopoulos and I am a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of Central Florida. I currently serve as the dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) at the University of Central Florida (UCF). I graduated with a Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens in 1981, and a Masters and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Connecticut (UConn) in 1983 and 1986, all in Electrical Engineering. I joined the University of Central Florida in December 1986.

My research interests span various paradigms and applications of Machine Learning, like Artificial Neural Networks, Decision Trees, Kernel-Based Methods, Evolutionary Computation, and Data Mining among other. In short I am interested in algorithms that perform intelligently (effectively and efficiently) challenging tasks. Please visit my Research pages for more information.

Additionally, feel free to check out my Teaching pages to see what courses I usually teach. Under Resources you will find (I hope) a variety of interesting things. Moreover, do not forget to visit the ML^2 site, where it has more information about my lab, the type of research that I do, students in my lab and the type of research that they do.

Throughout the years I have been supported by a number of agencies, such as NSF, DoD, DOL, State of Florida, others. The students in my lab are supported by funds from these funded efforts. Students graduated from my labs have found employment in the academia (e.g., University of Nevada Reno, Florida Institute of Technology, others), industry (L3 Communications, GE, Sonobi), government (Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific, San Diego, others).
