“… applications can provide really good mathematical questions … and you have the pleasure of seeing the idea have actually used.”
My name is Md. Iftekhar Tanveer and I am a PhD student of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Rochester. I am interested in data driven people analytics in various interaction scenarios (e.g. public speaking, job interview, negotiation etc.). I want to develop and apply mathematical models in designing and implementation of automated systems that can predict human performance, as well as, provide actionable feedback. In broader terms, my research falls under the categories of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), 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.
