Vladimir B Bajic


I am Director of the Computational Bioscience Research Center and Professor in the CEMSE Division at KAUST. I joined KAUST in May 2009. Before that time I was a Professor of Bioinformatics, as well as Acting and Deputy Director of the South African National Bioinformatics Institute (SANBI) at the University of the Western Cape in South Arica. I worked in industry and several academic and research institutions in several countries, including Vinca Nuclear Science Institute in Serbia and the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) in Singapore, where I was head of the Knowledge Extraction Laboratory. I extensively published across several fields and designed many bioinformatics tools and resources. My work in modeling and artificial intelligence has resulted in several promoter recognition tools and a knowledge discovery platform that found commercial applications. More than 60 master and doctoral students have graduated under my supervision. I am an elected member of the Academy of Nonlinear Sciences in Russia, and while in South Africa I was a registered professional engineer. For my bioinformatics work, I was awarded the first South African National Research Chair (Tier 1) in Bioinformatics and Human Health. My graduate degree in electrical engineering and master’s degree in electrical engineering sciences I earned from the University of Belgrade in Serbia, followed by a doctorate of engineering sciences in electrical engineering from the University of Zagreb in Croatia.
