Biography

Tihana Galinac Grbac is the full professor of computer science and the head Software Engineering and Information Processing Laboratory (SEIP Lab) at the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula. The Software Engineering and Information Processing Laboratory (SEIP Lab) she established at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Rijeka, Croatia in 2012.

Previously, she was working at Ericsson Nikola Tesla (ETK) and was actively involved in Ericsson Core Network development. With their scholarship, she received the MSc and PhD degree from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, Croatia, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. The eight years of experience in R&D projects developing large scale complex software system that is evolutionary developed by globally distrubuted teams have strongly influenced and motivated her research and have served as a platform for experimentation, where she has continously implemented her research results and is gaining motivation for further research.

At the Faculty of Engineering, University of Rijeka she participated in the development and realization of the new Study Programme of Computer Science, served as the head of this programme, and the professional practice coordinator, established a number of courses for undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students including specialist education programs. She founded the Software Engineering and Information Processing Laboratory (SEIP Lab) in 2011. She was head of Computer Engineering Department at the same faculty and head of SEIP Lab.

Her main research interests are related to large scale and complex software systems that are evolutionary developed. In a broader sense, she is also interested in a variety of large scale complex systems including smart cities, telecommunication networks and others. In her investigation she is actively performing experimentation within industry context using real data and statistical, soft computing and optimisation methods in the search for better understanding of these systems. She is actively involved as the leader, management committee member and researcher in a number of research projects funded by European Union, Croatian government or industry partners. The results of her work are continously published in international scientific journals and conferences. She is a member of the IEEE and ACM. She is married to Neven and has two sons - Mak and Vid and girl Lana.
