EEE Lecturer chosen as Editor-in-Chief
4 July 2022
Dr Adnan Mehonic was selected to oversee the content for the New Open Access Journal from AIP Publishing.
UCL Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) are pleased to announce that Dr Adnan Mehonic, EEE Lecturer and Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) research fellow, has been appointed as the founding editor-in-chief of AIP Publishing’s new open access scientific journal, APL Machine Learning.
Adnan will bring a wealth of knowledge in machine learning and novel hardware technologies for AI. He has authored more than 100 journal publications and international conference proceedings on memristive materials and devices as well as neuromorphic and energy-efficient AI technologies. He is a recipient of multiple awards, including the MIT Technology Review's "35 Innovators under 35," Wiley's Advanced Science "Rising Star," and "One to Watch" award for UCL's most innovative and entrepreneurial staff.
On being appointed, Adnan stated:
“There are two natural ways to connect machine learning, or more broadly, AI and applied physical science. The first involves applying ML techniques to physical systems to accelerate scientific discovery, leading to new insights in materials science, engineering, chemistry, biology, and applied physics. The second is to use domain knowledge from these disciplines to develop more efficient and more functional AI systems. I am thrilled to lead APL Machine Learning, which will capture both approaches to serve researchers working in all facets of AI and ML.
