Dr. Myriam Bounhas is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Information Technology at the Emirates College of Technology in Abu Dhabi (UAE) since January 2013. She obtained her PhD in Informatics Applied to Management, in January 2013, from the Higher Institute of Management of Tunis in Tunisia. Her research focuses on Machine Learning, Possibilistic Classification, Bayesian Classification, Certain/Uncertain Numerical data classification, Analogical Proportions and Preferences, Analogical Classification and Analogical NLP and IR. She has been, since 2005, a member of the LARODEC research laboratory at the Higher Institute of Management of Tunis in Tunisia, and she has been an invited researcher at the Informatics Research Institute of Toulouse (IRIT), since 2009 to date. Dr. Bounhas has supervised a number of Masters and Ph.D. theses in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Analogical Learning and Proportions. Dr. Bounhas has published, since 2006 to date, about 25 refereed scientific papers in many reputed international journals and conferences. Dr. Bounhas is a reviewer for many international peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
