Joanna Domanska obtained a Master of Engineering degree from the Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland, in 1994. She received her PhD in Computer Science in January 2005 from the Scientific Council of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Gliwice, and defended the habilitation dissertation in Computer Science in 2015 at the Faculty of Automatic Control, Electronics and Computer Science at the Silesian University of Technology. She has taken part in seven projects for the National Science Centre, Poland, and was project leader in two of them. She is a member of the SerIoT and the SDK4ED research teams, under the EU H2020 program. She is currently an Institute Professor at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences (IITIS-PAN) and member of the Computer Systems Modelling and Performance Evaluation Group since 1994, serving as leader of this group since 2018.
Her main areas of research include performance modelling methods for computer networks, particularly the modelling of network traffic intensity and the QoS related problems. Recently, her scientific interests have also been focused on the applications of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to networking research. She transferred her experience regarding the analysis of properties of the network traffic to create the Machine Learning-based approach to examine the LRD behaviour of the traffic. Another recent work was focused on the improvement of Quality of Service (QoS), energy-efficiency and security by using Self-Aware Networks. Her other research endeavours were focused on the IoT security and software security.
