Among ADAPT’s Innovating Women is Dr. Malika Bendechache, ADAPT Funder Investigator and Assistant Professor at the University of Galway. 

Dr. Malika Bendechache is a shining example of one of ADAPTs many Innovating Women.

Dr. Bendechache’s exceptional research in Machine Learning, Data and AI Governance. Dr. Bendechache has published 13 peer-reviewed articles last year alone, across different topics–particularly in medical image segmentation of brain and breast tumours which resulted in her winning the highly-esteemed Researcher of the Year award in ADAPT’s annual Recognition Awards 2022.

Previously, Dr. Bendechache held the position of Assistant Professor in the School of Computing at Dublin City University (DCU) and  has also held the position of Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Irish Institute of Digital Business (IIDB, dotLab), School of Business, DCU. 

Her work as part of the RECAP Horizon 2020 project focused on developing the next generation of Cloud/Edge/Fog Computing through Optimisation, Automation, and Simulation.
