Dr. Anthony Etuk
Dr. Anthony Etuk joined the Earlham Institute in February 2015 as a Research Software Engineer on the Collaborative Open Plant Omics' (COPO) project, a platform for plant scientists to describe, deposit and retrieve data more easily.
Dr. Etuk completed his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Aberdeen. His area of interest was multi-agent systems, with a focus on computational models of trust and reputation. In particular, he investigated how these techniques could be inexpensively applied to support decision-making in distributed environments, such as crowdsourcing, peer-to-peer networks, pervasive computing, and sensor networks. Dr. Etuk continues to explore these techniques, and a number of techniques from Machine Learning and statistics, in contexts of Open Science and Bioinformatics.
