Dr. Alessandra Mileo is currently a Tenured Assistant Professor and a Funded Investigator at the INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics, Dublin City University. She was previously a Senior Research Fellow, Adjunct Lecturer and Unit Leader at the INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics, National University of Ireland Galway. She holds an MSC and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Milan, Italy.
Before Joining the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI, NUIG) in 2010, she was a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Nomadis Lab, Dept. of Informatics, Systems and Communication of the University of Milano-bicocca, conducting interdisciplinary research activities involving Ambient Intelligence and Knowledge-driven Sensor Fusion, which converged in the succesful EU project proposal EasyReach, AAL, 2009-2-17, as well as the establishment of a spin-off company in 2009, now called Contexta.
She continued her active contribution to successful EU proposals within DERI and later INSIGHT, acquiring a competitive EU project in the Smart Cities realm (CityPulse: Real-Time IoT Stream Processing and Large-scale Data Analytics for Smart City Applications) and she has been Principal Investigator for the primary industry collaboration within the Research Centre portfolio (Enabling the Internet of Everything: a Linked Data infrastructure for networking, managing and analyzing streaming information and follow up industry-funded projects).
She has been working for a few years on scalable and interoperable ways of transforming web data streams into actionable knowledge. Research areas around this velocity aspect of Big Data involve Stream Reasoning, Web of Things/Internet of Things, query optimization, expressive and scalable stream reasoning languages and frameworks, hybrid methods for qualitative and quantitative reasoning, and access control for Linked Data. She is also active in collaborating with other research groups within the Center, applying research outcome in real world applications that have a very high economical and social potential impact. These include health monitoring, smart cities, sustainable IT and smart enterprise.
As part of her contribution to research and training, Dr. Mileo is currently module leader for Cloud Technologies and Collaboration and Innovation in DCU, and she has been co-PI for three successfull NSF grants sponsoring US students attending European Summer Schools in her area of expertise. She is heavily involved in supervision at undergrad and postgrad level, and she has successfully graduated 4PhD, 3MSc and 5MA students since 2012.
Recently she has developed a new research programme focused on neural-symbolic computation and knowledge-enhanced Deep Representation Learning. Dr. Mileo has secured almost 1 million euros in funding including national (SFI, IRC), international (EU, NSF) and industry-funded projects, publishing 90+ papers often in high impact journals and conferences and being an active PC member of over 20 top-ranked conferences and high-impact journals including the Journal of Web Semantics (JWS), IEEE Intelligent Systems (IEEE IS), Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP). Dr. Mileo has been involved as a Program Chair, Panelist and Doctoral Consortium Mentor and Chair in a number of conferences, workshops and tutorials and she is Area Editors of the Databases and Semantic Web track of the Association of Logic Programming Newsletter. Her current research focus is on Artificial Intelligence, including Stream Reasoning, Complex Systems, Probabilistic Rule Learning, Knowledge Discovery and Knowledge-informed Deep Representation Learning.
