Hello, my name is Janyl Jumadinova. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Allegheny College. I teach courses in introductory programming, algorithms, compilers, artificial intelligence and multi-agent and robotic systems. I also work with students on research project collaborations that produce publishable results, and supervise students on independent study, internship and senior thesis projects. My research is driven by the goal to design autonomous systems that can improve our quality of life by, for instance, making it easier to collect information, make decisions, or assist ill or elderly patients. In my research I focus on solving problems that occur when performing dynamic and complex tasks in unknown environments. I integrate methods from computational economics, game theory and market-based techniques with emergent computational techniques in intelligent systems to solve these problems. My current broad research interests include information aggregation, multi-agent and multi-robot systems, wearable sensor technologies, crowdsourcing, game theory, and artificial intelligence. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems, a Master's in Mathematics and a Doctorate degree in Information Technology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
