Helder Nakaya

Prof. Helder Nakaya is Deputy Director of School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of São Paulo, Brazil, Associate Professor at University of São Paulo, Brazil, and Adjunct Professor of the School of Medicine, Emory University, USA. He has a PhD in Molecular Biology with extensive training in Bioinformatics. He is an expert in Systems Vaccinology, an interdisciplinary field that combines systems-wide measurements, networks, and predictive modelling in the context of vaccines and infectious disease. Dr. Nakaya has developed systems biology approaches to understand and predict the mechanisms of vaccine induced-immunity for Yellow Fever, seasonal Influenza, Meningococcal, and Tularemia vaccines. His lab is focused on investigating the basis of infectious diseases using computational systems biology.

Felipe G Naveca

I am a microbiologist with experience in classical and molecular techniques applied to the study of human pathogens, mainly threatening RNA and DNA viruses. My research focuses on developing diagnostic tools, molecular epidemiology, and evolution, mostly on emergent and reemergent viruses. My team approaches include genomics and phylogenetic studies to characterize known and unknown viruses; field studies on arboviral emergence in a rural area in the Brazilian Amazon; immunogenetics studies related to susceptibility or resistance against microbial infections; studies on biomarkers of acute viral illness; in vitro & in vivo virus-host interactions and evolution; and SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory viruses molecular epidemiology. Senior investigator of Fiocruz Amazonas and Deputy Director of Research and Innovation. Member of the Brazilian Society for virology since 1997. Member of the Brazilian network of specialists in Zika and correlated diseases.

Mario Negrello

Mario Negrello obtained a mechanical engineering degree in Brazil (1997), and later after a period in the industry (VW 1999-2004) including RD and Prototypes, obtained his Masters degree (2006) and PhD (summa cum laude) in Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück in Germany in 2009. At that time, in the Fraunhofer Institute in Sankt Augustin (Germany) for Intelligent Dynamics and Autonomous Systems, he researched artificial evolution of neural network controllers for autonomous robots (2007/08). This work was awarded a scholarship by the International Society of Neural Networks (INNS) to sponsor an eight-month period (2008/09) as a visiting researcher at the Computational Synthesis Lab at the Aerospace Engineering department of the Cornell University in USA (with Hod Lipson). In his first post doctoral period he acted a group leader at the Computational Neuroscience laboratory at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (with Erik De Schutter). He now heads a neuroscience lab that combines empirical research and computational methods (with Chris De Zeeuw). He has published in the fields of Machine Learning and Cognitive Robotics, Artificial Life, Evolutionary Robotics, Neuroethology and Neuroscience, as well as a monograph published by Springer US in the Series Cognitive and Neural systems entitled Invariants of Behavior (2012).

Kok Yew Ng

I received a BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering and a Ph.D. in Fault Diagnosis and Control System from Monash University in 2006 and 2009, respectively. I am now a Lecturer at the School of Engineering, Ulster University, UK, and I am attached to the Nanotechnology and Integrated BioEngineering Centre (NIBEC). My research interests include fault diagnosis, vehicular systems, modelling, and data analytics for anomaly detection and classification.

In 2014–2015, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Division of Vehicular Systems, Linköping University, Sweden, where I worked with Volvo Car Corporation (VCC) on advanced fault diagnosis schemes in vehicular engines using model-based and data-driven methods.

I am also a co-investigator in SAFEWATER, a £5 million project funded by GCRF, where I lead the development and the optimisation of embedded algorithms in the SAFEWATER project. These embedded algorithms will be used for controlling the low-cost water disinfection technologies that are being developed during the SAFEWATER project.

I am also an Adjunct Senior Research Fellow with Monash University Malaysia where I served as a Lecturer from 2009, and subsequently a Senior Lecturer till 2017.

I am a Senior Member of the IEEE.

I am the Moderator for the IEEE TechRxiv and the Associate Editor of IEEE Access.
