Prof. Angelov (PhD '93, DSc '15) holds a Personal Chair in Intelligent Systems at Lancaster University and is a Fellow of the IEEE, of the IET and of ELLIS. He is also Vice President of the International Neural Networks Society (INNS) and Program co-Director of the Human-Centered Machine Learning for ELLIS. Prof. Angelov has 300+ publications in leading journals, peer-reviewed conference proceedings, 3 granted patents, 3 research monographs (published by Springer, 2002 and Wiley, 2012 and Springer, 2018) cited over 10000 times with an h-index 52 and i10-index of 168. The supervisor of his PhD, Dr. Dimitar P. Filev is a Member of the USA National Academy of Engineering.

Prof. Angelov has an active research portfolio in the area of computational intelligence and machine learning and internationally recognised results into online and evolving learning and explainable AI. Prof. Angelov leads numerous projects (including several multi-million ones) funded by UK research councils, EU, industry, UK MoD. His research was recognised by ‘The Engineer Innovation and Technology 2008 Special Award’ and ‘For outstanding Services’ (2013) by IEEE and INNS. He is also the founding co-Editor-in-Chief of Springer’s journal on Evolving Systems and Associate Editor (AE) of several leading international scientific journals, including IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, Soft Computing, etc. He is also Area Editor of the Fuzzy Sets and Systems journal and served as AE for Applied Soft Computing journal (2013-2018). He gave over two dozen keynote talks at high profile conferences and co-organised and co-chaired 30 IEEE conferences including several high profile IJCNN and FUZZ-IEEE conferences as well as series of more focused IEEE and INNS Conferences. Prof Angelov is the founding Chair of the Technical Committee on Evolving Intelligent Systems within the System, Man and Cybernetics Society of the IEEE (a Governor of which he also was during the term 2015-2017), he chaired the Standards Committee of the Computational Intelligent Society of the IEEE (2010-2012) initiating the first standard in the area of computational intelligence by IEEE (FML, standard 1855-2016). He was also a member of International Program Committee of over 100 international conferences (primarily IEEE).
