“… applications can provide really good mathematical questions … and you have the pleasure of seeing the idea have actually used.”

Gilbert Strang

My name is Md. Iftekhar Tanveer and I am a PhD student of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Rochester.321b43b I am interested in formulating mathematical models to explain human behavior in various interaction scenarios (e.g. public speaking, job interview, negotiation etc.). I want to apply these models in designing and implementation of automated systems that can predict human performance and can provide actionable feedback. In broader terms, my research falls under the categories of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), and Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning). I work with Dr. M. Ehsan Hoque in ROCHCI to push the boundaries of science and to touch the lives of people.
