Lucian PRODAN received his PhD in Computer Science with Magna Cum Laude honors from the “Politehnica” University of Timisoara in 2005. He is currently holding a position of Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the same university.

In 1992 he joined the “Politehnica” University of Timisoara and graduated with honors in 1997, receiving a merit diploma in Computer Engineering (with a minor on Hardware Engineering), with a diploma thesis carried out at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Zurich (ETHZ).

Shortly after the diploma dissertation, Lucian Prodan joined the Graduate School in Computer Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL). This was the moment of entering the realms of the Embryonics project and the world of bio-inspired computing machines, when he became a member of the research team led by prof. Daniel Mange. He held a position of Research and Teaching Assistant at the same institute after graduation.

The research efforts focus mainly on the coming together of the two worlds, biology and electronics. Besides the Embryonics framework, they also include Evolvable Hardware design, Distributed and Reconfigurable Computing, Quantum Computing, and FPGA and SoC platforms (research results were published in several papers).

Dr. Prodan served as a Program Committee member of the ACM's Computing Frontiers 2006 conference. He also was a reviewer for the SCI/ISAS 2001 and the CONTI conferences. He is a member of the ACM.
