Brief Biography

Professor Gammerman studied in Leningrad (now St Petersburg), was awarded his PhD and then worked in several Research Institutes of the Academy of Science of the USSR. In 1983 he moved to Great Britain and worked first as a Lecturer and then as a Reader at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. He was appointed to the established Chair in Computer Science at University of London ( Royal Holloway and Bedford New College) in 1993 and served as Head of Computer Science Department from 1995 until 2005. He is also Founding Director of Computer Learning Research Centre at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Professor Gammerman is a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Member of British Computer Society. He chaired and participated in organising committees of many international conferences and workshops on Machine Learning and Bayesian methods in Europe, Russia and in the United States. He is also a member of the editorial board of the Law, Probability and Risk journal.

Professor Gammerman's current research interest lies in application of Algorithmic Randomness Theory to machine learning and, in particular, to the development of confidence machines (conformal predictors). Areas in which these techniques have been applied include medical diagnosis, forensic science, genomics, environment and finance. Professor Gammerman has published about two hundred research papers and several books on computational learning and probabilistic inference.
