Jérôme Mendes has received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Coimbra in 2014, with the subject “Computational Intelligence Methodologies for Control of Industrial Processes”. In 2015, Jérôme got funds for his Postdoc, a Postdoctoral FCT grant “Self-Learning Fuzzy Logic Control for Industrial Processes”. Since March 2019, Jérôme has been Senior Researcher at Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR).
In the last 5 years, Jérôme has been involved as a team member with enterprise partners in several R&D projects, focusing his research in developing computational intelligence based solutions, mainly on industrial processes. He has published 35 papers and been involved in 20 R&D projects, 4 as Principal Investigator (PI), and 1 as co-PI.
Since Jan/2021, Jérome has been a Member of the Board (Vogal) of Directors of National Association of Researchers in Science and Technology (ANICT).
