Research Interests 

Dr. Dick’s research interests are broadly in the areas of computational intelligence (fuzzy logic and neural networks), machine learning, and data mining, as well as the interdisciplinary application of these technologies. His main theoretical interests are in multivalued logics (particularly the new area of "complex fuzzy logic"), and learning from imbalanced datasets, particularly for data stream mining. Some of his past applied research includes software reliability, proteomics, and livestock disease surveillance. Ongoing applied research projects include Web security and privacy, and modeling and control of cyber-physical systems.
