Evgeny Mirkes (Ph.D. Sc.D.) is a Lecturer in applied mathematics in School of computing and mathematical sciences at the University of Leicester and a leader of several projects in the Data Mining. His main research interests are biomathematics data mining and software engineering, neural network and artificial intelligence. He has led and supervised many projects in data analysis and the development of decision-support systems for computational diagnosis and treatment planning and has participated in applied projects in Natural Language Processing in the area of social media data analysis. He has rich experience in Predictive Mathematical and Computational Modelling and in finding solutions to classification clustering and auto coding problems. In particular he developed a special programming language for Neural Networks created a theory on geometrical complexity which is applicable to approximators of several types and allows the comparing of various methods of data approximations. He developed a system for online diagnosis of lymphoma in veterinary application (for Avacta Animal Health) one system for analysis of geophysical borehole information (for Weatherford) and has led many other projects of this type.


Main area of interest are Artificial Intelligence, applied statistics, machine learning, data mining, natural language processing.

Dr Mirkes elaborated a new and universal framework to minimise arbitrary sub-quadratic error potentials in machine learning and developed new machine learning methods which achieve orders of magnitude with faster computational performance than corresponding state-of-the-art methods.

The new powerful version of Supervised PCA was developed. This version allow significantly reduce dimension of space used to solve specific classification problem.

Several projects was performed with College of Life Science: with TARN in collaboration with Prof. Timothy Coats and Dr. Damian Roland and with Prof. Thomas Yates Dr. Alex Rowlands and Dr. Petra Jones.

Several collaborative project with Prof. Stanislav S. Piletsky from chemistry department. There were several successful industrial projects with Weatherford Ltd. Bellrock Group SPRINT and other.
