Professor Mihaela Ulieru has held the Canada Research Chair in Adaptive Information Infrastructures for the e-Society since 2005 when she also established (with Canada Foundation for Innovation funding) and leads the Adaptive Risk Management Laboratory (ARM Lab) researching complex networks as control paradigm for complex systems to develop evolvable architectures for resilient e-networked applications and holistic security ecosystems. In 2007 she was appointed to the Science, Technology and Innovation Council of Canada by the Minister of Industry, to advise the government and provide foresight on innovation issues related to the ICT impact on Canada's economic development and social well-being against international standards of excellence.
Professor Ulieru has a PhD in Diagnostics and Controls of Dynamical Systems from Darmstadt University of Technology in Germany (1995) and was postdoctoral fellow in the Intelligent Robotics and Manufacturing Group led by Professor William Gruver at Simon Fraser University, Canada (1996-1998). She was on Faculty at Brunel University in London, UK and at the University of Calgary in Canada where she held the Junior Nortel Chair in Intelligent Manufacturing and founded the Emergent Information Systems Lab. As a member of the governing board (AdCom) of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, Professor Ulieru founded the international Industrial Informatics research community and its two major forums: the IEEE Industrial Informatics Conferences and the IEEE-IES Industrial Agents Technical Committee. In 2008 she founded the IT Revolutions Forum and was General Chair of its first conference held in Venice, Italy in December 2008.
She has held and holds appointments on several international S&T advisory boards and review panels, among which are the Science and Engineering Research Council of Singapore, the Scientific Council of the EU Proactive Initiative on Pervasive Adaptation (PERADA) and the EU Network of Excellence in Intelligent Manufacturing (IPROMS), the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada's Advisory Panel on International Strategy and as expert on its ICT and Security review panels as well as the US NSF Cyber-Systems and several EU FP7 expert panels.
To capitalize on her achievements and expertise in distributed intelligent systems by making information communication technologies an integrated component of policy making targeting a safe, sustainable and innovation-driven world, Professor Ulieru recently founded the IMPACT (Innovation Management and Policy Accelerated by Communication Technologies) Institute for the Digital Economy for which she currently acts as President.
