Anisoara Calinescu is Associate Professor of Computer Science and Deputy Head of Department (Teaching), in the Department of Computer Science of the University of Oxford. She has a 5-year (MSc equivalent) Computer Science degree from the Technical University of Iasi, Romania, and a DPhil in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford.
Ani's main research area is Modelling and Reasoning about Complex Systems. Her research interests are fundamentally interdisciplinary, and include: complex systems and complexity metrics; supply chains and financial systems; agent-based modelling; IoT-based Digital Twins; systemic risk. Her recent work includes applying Machine Learning techniques to identify behavioural patterns in supply chain and financial market data; and building, validating and calibrating large-scale agent-based models of complex systems.
Ani is currently a Principal Investigator on "A demonstrator and reference framework IoT-based Supply Chain Digital Twin" Pitch-In project, in collaboration with Cambridge University and Schlumberger, and a Co-investigator on two projects funded by JP Morgan Chase AI Faculty Research Awards.
