Marco Castellani received his Laurea degree in physics from the University of Padova, Italy, in 1993, M.S. degree in artificial intelligence with engineering applications from University of Wales, Cardiff, UK, in 1995, and Ph.D. from University of Wales, Cardiff, UK, in 2000. He is currently employed at the Department of Biology of the University of Bergen, Norway. His current research activity focuses on the development of agent-based models of marine systems where evolutionary and ecological processes generate ecosystem structure and the influence of environmental variables and predator-prey interactions on the emergence of traits in marine populations. He also keeps an active interest in engineering applications of machine learning. He has over 15 years of research expertise in nature-inspired intelligent algorithms, such as artificial neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, and swarm intelligence. He has worked in the academia and industry on AI applications in the fields of automation, machine vision, data classification and clustering, and modeling.
