Leonardo Franco

Universidad de Málaga, Spain


Leonardo Franco was born in Tucuman, Argentina, and he did grade and Ph.D. studies at Cordoba National University, Argentina. During his Ph.D. degree studies, he studied the genealization abilities of feedforward neural networks obtaining bounds on the number of queries needed to achieve perfect generalization. After his Ph.D., he got into neurosciences, carrying on research in the labs of Alessandro Treves (Trieste) and Edmund T. Rolls (Oxford) developing and applying information theory methods for analysing neuronal recordings. Since 2005, he has been at Malaga University (Spain) where he is an Associate Professor. He has published more than 50 works in leading journals in the areas of neural networks and computational neuroscience and in proceedings from international conferences. He has edited and authored two books, a recent one on Constructive Neural Networks (Springer), area in which he has been very active in recent years. His other research interests include computational intelligence applications to cancer prognosis, data mining, and pattern recognition.
