Andrew Pownuk

Associate Professor of Instruction, University of Texas at El Paso

At present, Dr. Pownuk’s research is related to autonomous, self-adaptive, self-learning, computational methods which can be applied to the automated development of mathematical models and related computer code. His research was successfully applied in the development of various online learning systems.

Dr. Pownuk was a summer Faculty Research Fellowship at U.S. Army CCDC Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi, MD., and worked on machine learning-based optimization.

Dr. Pownuk cooperated with the Bergen Language Design Laboratory (BLDL), Department of Computer Science, The University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway. This project was dedicated to automated software development based on the given mathematical description.

Dr. Pownuk work on autonomous algorithms for solving optimization problems for the COCONUT Project, at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.
