Christian Jacob, Ph.D.

I am a Professor in the Department of Computer Science in the Faculty of Science and in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary.

I serve as the Director of Bioinformatics in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program. I am also directing the LINDSAY Virtual Human project.

I am the Associate Head for Research & Strategic Planning in the Department of Computer Science.

I have written two books on evolutionary computing and natural programming paradigms and have published more than 100 papers.

My research interests include evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence, intuitive artificial intelligence, cinematic medicine & illustration, agent-based modelling and simulation of complex biological systems.
