Marek Lóderer

Research areas: machine learning, ensemble learning, metaheuristic and nature inspired computation, time series forecasting

Position: Junior Researcher

Marek uses machine learning, ensemble learning and metaheuristic optimization algorithms to explore various microgrid-related problems in energy economics, with a focus on prediction and optimization of energy consumption. He has presented his work at local and international conferences and published his findings in scientific journals and proceedings of professional organizations, such as ACM and IEEE.

During his PhD studies at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, he led a student team developing a learning platform to revitalize geography teaching in elementary and high school using VR and AR technologies. In other projects, he and his students produced a web-based application for modeling and simulating behavior in microgrids, as well as a high-speed GPU accelerated columnar database (qikkDB) suitable for big data. He has participated in several national and international research projects, such as Newton H2020 and ICERISE, as well as industry projects involving sféra, ATOS and Instarea.

In 2021, he obtained a Doctoral degree in Informatics from the Technical University of Košice.
