Robert Legenstein received his PhD in computer science from Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria, in 2002. In 2010 he got his Habilitation (venia docendi) for neuroinformatics. Currently he is full professor at the Department of Computer Science, TU Graz, head of the Institute for Theoretical Computer Science, and leading the Graz Center for Machine Learning (GraML). His primary research interests are learning in models for biological networks of neurons and neuromorphic hardware, probabilistic neural computation, brain-inspired machine learning, and memristor-based computing concepts. Robert Legenstein serves as action editor for Transactions on Machine Learning Research and has served as associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems. He was several times area chair for ICLR and Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS). Robert Legenstein is a board member of the Austrian Society for Artificial Intelligence.
