She is a permanent invited professor at the University of Havana, a life member of the IEEE Society, an honorary member of the Cuban Society of Mathematics and Computation, an Honorary Doctor of the Aalto University School of Science and Technology and Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Habana. Her research interests include stochastic algorithms, large deviation theory, machine learning and computational intelligence, theory and algorithms for artificial neural networks, linear and non linear exploratory data analysis, non linear forecasting methods. Since 1986, her main work deals with artificial and biological neural networks, Kohonen maps and their applications in data analysis. She is the author of about 140 publications in this field. She is regularly solicited as referee or international conference program committee member. She organized several international conferences. She was in charge of the laboratory SAMM (Statistics, Analysis, Multidisciplinary Modelization) at the University Paris 1 until 2012. ... More >>
