After over 30 year of studies and research in mathematics (PhD), mathematical physics, telecommunications, artificial intelligence and data mining before Adam has discovered his ultimate passion, when he joined Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne in 2003: the wrestling with statistical and computational challenges standing in the way of practical applications of emerging genomic technologies.
In 2004, following a year of rubbing shoulder with Peter MacCallum’s wet lab researchers, he joined newly founded National ICT Australia as a principal researcher, instead of returning to Telstra Research Laboratories, where he was employed for previous 20 years, or to the academia where he was lecturing in maths prior to that in Warsaw, Poland and Baghdad, Iraq. There he championed the next 10 years of research into extreme challenges for bioinformatics, machine learning and their applications. This included years of collaboration in agriculture with DArT and a number of biomedical laboratories.
Currently he splits his time between DArT; Genomics Biomarkers Systems, GeBiS, yet another start-up which he founded in 2014 – and the Centre for Neural Engineering, The University of Melbourne, Australia, where he holds an honorary position and The Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science, Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. Adam has co-invented 12 patents and co-authored over 100 scientific papers to date.
