Bogdan Burlacu is Upper Austrian champion in tournament chess

Even though this announcement is not exactly in the core area of our research interests, we are more than proud to announce that our research associate Dr. Bogdan Burlacu has won the Upper Austrian championship title in tournament chess.

Bogdan came from Romania to Upper Austria in 2011 as candidate of a dissertation program that was carried out as part of the Joint International PhD Project between JKU and FH Hagenberg. In addition to working on several R&D projects, he completed his doctoral studies with distinction in 2017 under the supervision of Professors Michael Affenzeller and Josef Küng.

Bogdan is currently working at the Josef Ressel Centre for Symbolic Regression as part of our research group. We are proud of your remarkable success in your favorite hobby!
