Research Interests:

Dr. Anahideh’s research objectives center around developing new optimization methods for expensive deterministic/stochastic black-box simulators. She intends to contribute to the challenging problem of hyper-parameter tuning, a necessary step toward democratizing machine learning. Her research interests span in black-box optimization, mathematical modeling, data analytics, and applied machine learning including learning with limited labeled data. Viewing research as teamwork, Dr. Anahideh firmly believes the power of developing meaningful relationships with whom she works is critical to successful learning and research.
