Janyl Jumadinova is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. She holds 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. Her 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. She focuses on solving problems that occur when performing dynamic and complex tasks in unknown environments and integrates methods from computational economics, game theory and market-based techniques with emergent computational techniques in intelligent systems to solve these problems. Janyl’s current broad research interests include information aggregation, multi-agent and multi-robot systems, wearable sensor technologies, crowdsourcing, game theory, and artificial intelligence. She also develops and teaches a wide range of computer science classes at Allegheny and enjoys working with students on research project collaborations that produce publishable results, and supervises students on independent study projects, internship, and senior thesis projects.
