Personal profile

Iryna Yevseyeva is a Lecturer in Computer Science and Cyber Security at the Faculty of Technology, School of Computer Science and Informatics. Her research interests are in multi-criteria decision analysis and multiobjective optimisation, and their application in various domains including security, manufacturing, health care and chemo-informatics. At the De Montfort University, Iryna belongs to the Cyber Technology Institute, Cyber Security Centre and works on cyber security decision making and human aspect of cyber security.
Before joining De Montfort she was a leading research associate in the Choice Architecture for Information Security project at the Centre for Cybercrime and Computer Security, School of Computing Science, Newcastle University, UK. This project is also a part of Research Institute in Science of Cyber Security. Earlier Iryna did several post-docs in the Netherlands (at the University of Leiden working on portfolio drug discovery with multicriteria optimisation) and Portugal (at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria working on spam filtering optimisation, at INESC Porto working on multiobjective scheduling and at the University of Algarve developing a portfolio selection evolutionary algorithm).
Iryna obtained her PhD in Finland at the University of Jyvaskyla for her work on multicriteria decision aiding algorithms for classification. She has (co-) authored > 30 peer reviewed research publications, participated in 7 research projects and obtained 10 small grants. She supervised 10 MSc students successfully and has experience of helping managing a large EPSRC grant.
