Leandro Nunes de Castro has a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Goias, a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Unicamp, a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Unicamp and an MBA in Strategic Business Management from the Catholic University of Santos. He was a Research Associate at the University of Kent at Canterbury from 2011 to 2002, a Research Fellow at Unicamp from 2002 to 2006, a Visiting Lecturer at the Universiti Technologi Malaysia in September 2005. He is currently a Professor at the Graduate Program in Electrical Engineering at the Mackenzie University, where he founded and lead the Natural Computing Laboratory (LCoN). He is acknowledged by the Brazilian Research Council as a leading researcher in Computer Science, and was recognized in 2011 as one of the most cited authors in Computer Science from the country. His main research lines are Natural Computing and Data Mining, emphasizing Artificial Immune Systems, Neural Networks, Swarm Intelligence, Evolutionary Algorithms and real-world applications. He was the Chief Editor of the International Journal of Natural Computing Research and member of the committee of several conferences. He has eight books published, from among four were written and the other four organized, and has published over 220 paper scientific papers. Over the past 11 years he founded three start-ups.
