Dr. Olfa Nasroui's CV
Nasraoui is the Endowed Chair of e-commerce and the founding director of the Knowledge
Discovery and Web Mining Lab at
of Louisville. She received her Ph.D. in
Computer Engineering and Computer Science from the
University of Missouri-Columbia in 1999. From
2000 to 2004, she was an Assistant Professor at
the University of Memphis. Her research
activities include Data Mining, Web mining &
Personalization, and Computational Intelligence. She
is the recipient of the National Science Foundation
CAREER Award for outstanding young scientists, and
the recipient of the
best paper award in theoretical developments in
computational intelligence at the Artificial Neural
Networks In Engineering conference (ANNIE 2001).
She has more than 110 refereed publications, including 35 journal papers and book chapters and eight
edited volumes. Her research is funded mainly by the US
NSF and by NASA.
She has served as a reviewer, program Vice Chair and organizer for several
data and Web mining conferences and workshop. Between 2004 and 2008, she has organized the
WebKDD workhops on Web Mining and Web
Usage Analysis, held each year in conjunction with the
ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge
Discovery and Data Mining (KDD).
