Borys Wróbel’s background is biology and computer science, and he works at the intersection between the two fields. His current research interest are computational properties of biologically-inspired models of computation (artificial gene regulatory networks and spiking neural networks), which involves building artificial life software platforms that use high performance computing and neuromorphic hardware. Borys graduated from the University of Gdansk (Poland) in 1997, was a Fulbright Visiting Researcher in the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, CA, and later FEBS and EMBO Fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel), Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Valencia, and Sciex Fellow in the Insitute of Neuroinformatics at the University of Zurich and ETHZ (Switzerland). He is a member of The Young Academy of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Intelligent Systems Applications Technical Committee of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computational Intelligence Society (since 2012), and Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (since 2012).
