Eleni Mangina carried out her PhD work at the University of Strathclyde (UK), Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, working on Agent-based applications for intelligent data interpretation under the supervision of Prof. Jim McDonald. The research area focused on software analysis, design and development of multi agent systems, which utilise different Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques (Knowledge based systems, Artificial Neural Networks, Case Based Reasoning systems and Model based Reasoning systems). Eleni Mangina holds an M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from the Department of Artificial Intelligence at University of Edinburgh in the UK and an MSc in Agricultural Science from Agricultural University of Athens in Greece. In 2002 she joined School of Computer Science, at University College Dublin, Ireland. Eleni Mangina is guided by her own definition of the art of persistence, that involves both courage and compassion with research integrity and authenticity. Her lab operates at the intersection between applied Artificial Intelligence (VR/AR; Data Analytics; UAVs; Information Systems) and a portfolio development within interdisciplinary applications (i.e. Engineering [Energy Sector] and Educational Systems with XR). Eleni Mangina is currently project coordinator of two (2) H2020 projects (ARETE & AHA), one (1) Erasmus+ (FANTASIA) and partner within two other EU projects (BASE, RoboPisces). She is currently a funded investigator as part of SFI Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP), an academic collaborator with VistaMilk SFI Research Centre (Milk by Design) and academic supervisor for two (2) SFI Centres for Research Training (CRT) (Machine Learning – ML-Labs; Digitally-Enhanced Reality – D-REAL). Her lab also develops novel software tools for UAV communications. She has authored more than 190 peer-reviewed articles in national and international peer reviewed workshops and conferences and international journals, including in IEEE and ACM. Eleni Mangina also contributes as a committee member for reviews to many international conferences and journals. She is currently the Deputy Vice Principal (International) within the UCD College of Science and the Chair of Athena SWAN Bronze Award application for the School of Computer Science.
