Predrag Tosic is an early mid-career researcher with a unique mix of academic research, industrial and DOE lab R&D experiences. His research interests include AI, data science, machine learning, intelligent agents and multi-agent systems, cyber-physical/cyber-secure systems, distributed coordination and control, large-scale complex networks, internet-of-things/agents, and mathematical and computational models and algorithms for "smart" transportation, energy and other grids. He is interested in applying data analytics, machine learning, intelligent agent and AI techniques to emerging problems related to large-scale decentralized cyber-physical systems, critical infrastructures and “smart grids”, autonomous vehicles, as well as energy, health care and other domains of major economic and societal impact.

Tosic holds a doctorate in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His doctoral dissertation (2006) was on Distributed AI and large-scale Multi-Agent Systems. Most recently, at Washington State University (2015 - 2017) Tosic worked on dynamics of large-scale networks, graph pattern mining, Boolean Network models of cyber-physical systems, Internet-of-Agents, as well as AI, data analytics and knowledge engineering applied to problems in health care. While at the University of Houston (2009 – 2012), he did research in machine learning, multi-agent distributed computing and control, data mining and distributed database systems, emerging behavior in complex networks, “smart energy” and computational game theory. During his graduate studies and combined five years of non-tenure-track academic research, he authored close to 70 peer-reviewed publications; the rest of his post-doctoral career has been spent in high-tech industry. He has a versatile R&D experience spanning three different high-tech industries and with big companies (Cisco Systems and Microsoft) and high-tech startups, as well as with a leading government research lab (Los Alamos National Laboratory). He holds three USPTO patents (IP of Cisco Systems).

In addition to a doctorate in Computer Science, Tosic holds three master's degrees, two in mathematical sciences and one in CS. Tosic has a considerable teaching and student research mentoring experience. He has enjoyed working with students of a broad variety of ethnic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds and at different types of academic institutions. He has been actively involved with IEEE – Palouse Section and is currently President of the section's Computer Society.
