Three Postdocs at FMC2 have secured new positions in 2016. After six years working with Professor Michael O’Neill on genetic programming and machine learning, Dr. Alex Agapitos took on the role of Machine Learning Expert, Ireland Research and Innovation Center at Huawei Technologies in April. This is an exciting new position and the cluster wish Alex every success.

Two Postdocs working with Professor John Cotter have also secured new Lectureship positions. Dr. Anita Suurlaht, a former PhD student with FMC2 under the supervision of Professor Gregory Connor at Maynooth University and more recently a Postdoc at UCD will take up a Lectureship post at UCD Smurfit Graduate Business School in September 2016. Dr. Mark Hallam, a Postdoc with the cluster since June 2015, will begin a Lecturership of Finance post in the Finance Group of Essex Business School in August 2016. Again, the cluster wish both Anita and Mark well in their new roles.
