Reducing work-related rumination through personalized neurostimulation
Professor Roi Cohen Kadosh
Head of School of Psychology and Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience
In 2021 I moved from the University of Oxford to the University of Surrey to take the Headship of the School of Psychology. Here is a short bio:
- I received PhD in Neuropsychology (summa cum laude, direct track) under the supervision of A. Henik from the Ben-Gurion University in 2007
- My postdoc with V. Walsh (UCL) was funded by The International Brain Research Organization and a Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship
- I joined the University of Oxford in 2009 to establish the Cognition, Learning & Plasticity Group
- I received the Professorial Distinction Award of the University of Oxford (2015), thereby becoming a full professor 8 years after completing my PhD
- I founded Cognite Neurotechnology in 2021.

I am the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems and Co-Editor-in-Chief of Complex & Intelligent Systems (Springer). I was an elected AdCom member (2012-2013), Vice President for Technical Activities (2014-2015), and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (2013-2015, 2017-2019) of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. I was elevated to an IEEE Fellow for contributions to evolutionary optimization.
I obtained the BSc, MSc and PhD degrees from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China and the Dr.-Ing. from Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. Before joining Surrey in 2010, I was a Principal Scientist with Honda Research Institute Europe, Germany. I did postdoctoral research with the Industrial Engineering Department, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, USA from 1998 to 1999. I was an Assistant and Associate Professor with the Electrical Engineering Department, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China from 1992 to 1996.
I am an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on Nanobioscience, Soft Computing (Springer), and BioSystems (Elsevier). I am also an Editorial Board Member of the Evolutionary Computation Journal (MIT Press) and Natural Computing (Springer). I am a past Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, Part C: Applications and Reviews, and the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, IEEE Transactions on Autonomous Mental Development, and IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine.
I am a Member of EPSRC Peer Review College and EPSRC ICT Responsive Mode Panel, a Panel Member of EC FP7 FET/HBP grants, a Panel Review Member of Academy of Finland and a Reviewer of VQR (Research Assessment), Italy.
I am the General Co-Chair of the 2016 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (SSCI 2016), Founding General Co-Chair of the IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Big Data, IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Multi-Criterion Decision-Making (IEEE MCDM), IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Dynamic and Uncertain Environments (IEEE CIDUE). I was General Chair of 2012IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (IEEE CIBCB 2012) and Program Chair of 2013 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation.
