Dr. David Elizondo is a Principal Lecturer in the Department of Computer Technology at De Montfort University. After completing his BA in Computer Science from Knox College , Galesbourg, Illinois, USA, he worked as a software engineer/lab manager for a latinoamerican agronomical research and teaching institute based in Costa Rica ( CATIE ). This institute, through a Swiss project, sponsored him to do a MS in Artificial Intelligence at the Department of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Computing of the University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, USA. After this he obtained a PhD in computer science from the University of Strasbourg , France in cooperation with the Swiss Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial Intelligence (IDIAP). He then worked for Neuvoice, formerly Neural Systems, a spin off company of the University of Plymouth , UK. As a senior researcher he worked in the development of an intelligent monitoring system for the petroleum industry. This system was based on neural network techniques. Later, he worked as a software architect for ACTERNA, an international company which supplies software/hardware solutions to telecom companies. He was part of the team developing QMS, a quality of service management system for leased lines. In parallel to this work, he was a part time lecturer at the University of Plymouth where he taught database, and data structures and algorithms.
The De Montfort University Interdisciplinary Group in Intelligent Transport Systems (DIGITS)
I am also an active member of the following research groups: (1) The Cyber Security Centre(2) The Centre for Computational Intelligence (CCI).
I am the research leader of the CCI Neural Network subgroup, which is particularly well known internationally for the research work conducted in the area of Constructive Neural Networks and Linear Separability as evidenced by my on-going list of high quality publications in these two fields of research.
