Hristo Aladjov is a research software developer with an interdisciplinary doctorate in motor control and artificial intelligence form the Center of Biomedical Engineering, Bulgarian Academy of Science. As post-doctoral fellow at the US-EPA, he developed algorithms for strategic chemical selection to allow mechanistic modelling of large chemical inventories. In 2013, he joined OECD in Paris, France to continue his work on Effectopedia, a collaborative research platform for the development of quantitative Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs).
Along with Dr. Gilman Veith (International QSAR Foundation), Dr. Aladjov shaped the early vision of AOPs, enabling scientis from different backgrounds to efficiently collaborate in describing the stressor induced cascade of biological responses across different levels of biological organization. In his over 20 years of experience with design and implementation of innovative modeling software, he had lead and contributed to multiple research projects, fostering the rigorous scientific approach to the improvement of human, social and environmental health.
