Aptima Designates a Fellow
Dr. Georgiy Levchuk Named Aptima Fellow
Woburn, MA, March 5, 2014 – Aptima, Inc. has named Dr. Georgiy Levchuk, a Distinguished Scientist in the company’s Analytics, Modeling & Simulation Division, a Corporate Fellow.
The Aptima Fellow designation recognized employees who have a history of demonstrating technical leadership in initiating and developing multiple strategic technical programs and who have the potential to make continued contributions of similar or larger scope. The designation is intended to foster the creation of strategic innovative, tangible, and useful technologies, technology programs, or products. Candidates are nominated by the company’s Chief Scientist and their appointment is confirmed by the Board of Directors. There may be multiple Aptima Fellows at any one time, but by design the designation is rare.
Dr. Levchuk joined Aptima in 2002 while still a doctoral candidate at the University of Connecticut. He has been instrumental in developing the company’s Activity Based Intelligence technologies, which are built on a core of advanced algorithms that learn and search for patterns over large, noisy data sets to automatically identify patterns of interest to analysts. Dr. Levchuk’s innovative approach in this area has resulted in technologies that make obsolete the computationally infeasible “exhaustive search” technique required by most current state-of-the-art technologies.
An immigrant from Ukraine, Dr. Levchuk came to the United States as a graduate student in electrical engineering. While at the University of Connecticut he wrote a breakthrough thesis on how to apply complex mathematical models to understanding human organizations. In addition to his keen intellectual capabilities, Dr. Levchuk’s ability to work with and lead multiple interdisciplinary teams made up of mathematicians, computer scientists, cognitive scientists, experimental psychologists, and software developers has allowed him to implement technological breakthroughs at Aptima.
Dr. Levchuk received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Connecticut, specializing in the design of congruent, robust, and adaptive organizations. He received his B.S./M.S.M. in Mathematics with highest honors from the National Taras Shevchenko University of Kiev, Ukraine. He received the 2004 Best Paper Award at the prestigious International Command and Control Research and Technology Symposium, and Best Student Paper Awards at the 2002 and 2003 Command and Control Symposia. He was the 2005 Plenary speaker at the International Command and Control Research and Technology Symposium.
