Steering Committee, Former Co-Chair
Carla E. Brodley is the dean of the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University. Prior to joining Northeastern, she was a professor of the Department of Computer Science and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Tufts University (2004-2014). Before joining Tufts she was on the faculty of the School of Electrical Engineering at Purdue University (1994-2004).
A Fellow of the ACM and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), Brodley’s interdisciplinary machine learning research led to advances not only in computer and information science, but in many other areas including remote sensing, neuroscience, digital libraries, astrophysics, content-based image retrieval of medical images, computational biology, chemistry, evidence-based medicine, and predictive medicine.
Brodley’s numerous leadership positions in computer science as well as her chosen research fields of machine learning and data mining include serving as program co-chair of ICML, co-chair of AAAI, and serving as associate editor of the Journal of AI Research, and the Journal of Machine Learning Research. She has previously served on the Defense Science Study Group, the CRA board of directors, the board of the International Machine Learning Society, the AAAI Council, and DARPA’s Information Science and Technology (ISAT) board. She is currently serving as an executive committee member of the Northeast Big Data Hub, and as a member-at-large of the section on Information, Computing, and Communication of AAAS.
