Short biography

Marcus J. Neuer was born in Germany in 1977. He received the Dipl.-Phys. degree, with distinction, from the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf in 2003. From 2003 to 2006 he was researcher at the Heinrich-Heine-University in different educational and scientific roles, where he received the degree Dr. rer. nat. in 2006, following a Ph.D. thesis on a stochastic theory about anomalous transport in plasmas.

From 2006 to 2007, he worked as Post-Doc for the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf. In 2007, he joined Target Systemelectronic GmbH (ICx Technologies GmbH, FLIR Radiation GmbH) as researcher and algorithm developer, focusing on algorithms for nuclide identification and nuclear signal processing and acting as scientific point-of-contact to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). As of December 2012, he became project manager for European research projects at the VDEh.-Betriebsforschungsinstitut GmbH (BFI). His experience is based on projects conducted for diverse high profile organisations such as the United Nations (UN), the European commission (EU), the US Department of Energy (DOE, specifically the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO)), the US Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). Apart from management responsibilities in different roles as project manager, PI or coordinator, his technical and scientific interests concentrate on the formal design of algorithms, where his focus resides on a) agent technology, ensembles and artificial learning strategies, b) forecasting and simulation strategies utilizing intrinsic process stochasticity including next generation Monte-Carlo techniques on high performance computer systems, c) data analytics including big data technology and d) novel predictive approaches for production deficiencies and staff safety.

Beneath his academic background, he has more than twenty years experience in software development and software architecture, well acquainted to nearly all modern programming languages. His algorithmic application interests include holonic manufacturing, stochastics, Bayesian statistics, cognitive filters, neural networks, and deconvolution techniques. Dr. Neuer is co-founder of innoRIID GmbH., a company which develops, manufactures and integrates solutions for radiation detection. In 2013, he developed ELIA, a next-generation nuclide identification code based on artificial intelligence which was successfully commercialised in the products of innoRIID.

Dr. Neuer is author and co-author of various scientific works. He contributes regularly to scientific conferences and is member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the German physical society (DPG) and the VDEh.
