Rafal A. Angryk received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science in 2004 from Tulane University. Dr. Angryk also holds two other master's degrees, which he obtained from universities in Poland. In 1999, Dr. Angryk received a M.A. in Business Management from the University of Szczecin and three years later a M.Eng. degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Szczecin.
Dr. Angryk is currently employed as an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Montana State University (MSU). Prior to arriving at MSU, he was involved for four years in the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) research project on Intelligent Database Agents for Geospatial Knowledge Integration and Management, administrated by the Center for Computational Sciences in the Stennis Space Center (NASA). Before that he was an instructor in the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Szczecin.
Dr. Angryk's current research interests lie in the areas of Data Mining, Databases (Spatial Databases, Fuzzy Database Models), Distributed Systems (Mobile Agents Technology, Distributed Databases), and Computational Intelligence (Fuzzy Expert Systems). He has published over 50 journal articles, book chapters and peer-reviewed conference papers in these areas. His research has been sponsored by the federal agencies: NASA (major contributor), NGA, NSF and industry: Intergraph Corporation, RightNow Technologies (currently Oracle), with the total of funded grants (where Dr. Angryk participated as PI or Co-PI) currently exceeding $5.8M. Dr. Angryk is a founding director of MSU's interdisciplinary research group, the Data Mining Laboratory, which currently has 3 professors, 1 full-time post-doctoral researcher, 7 Ph.D. students, and 4 other students.
Dr. Angryk has been awarded Outstanding Researcher Award twice by the MSU. First in May 2006, by the College of Engineering, and the second time in May 2010 by Computer Science Department. Since 2006, Dr. Angryk serves as the Ph.D. program coordinator in Computer Science Department and during that period the program has doubled in size.
