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

Gilbert Strang

I am interested in data-driven people analytics in various interaction scenarios (e.g. public speaking, job interview, negotiation etc.). I want to design and develop mathematical models for understanding human behaviors. Such models can provide useful insights about humans. The play vital role while implementing useful systems for improving communication skills.

My name is Md. Iftekhar Tanveer. I am a Ph.D. student of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester. 321b43b In broader terms, my research falls under the categores of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Affective Computing and Machine Learning. I work with Dr. M. Ehsan Hoque in ROCHCI to push the boundaries of science and to touch the lives of people.
