Dr. Nazanin Morshedlou (Tajik)
Nazanin obtained her Ph.D. in industrial and systems engineering at the University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma, where she focused on developing optimization models and heuristic algorithms for restoration crew routing in complex infrastructure networks. Now, Nazanin is an assistant professor in the department of industrial and systems engineering at Mississippi State University. As an assistant professor, her work focuses on three research thrusts: (i) dynamic damage assessment of infrastructure network using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), (ii) a dynamic crew routing for infrastructure network restoration under incomplete information, and (iii) the applications of Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) in the emergency response processes.
Dr. Nazanin Naderi
Nazanin Naderi is an assistant professor in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department at Youngstown State University (YSU).
She completed her Ph.D. at Texas Tech University. She has worked in consulting companies, University of Oklahoma, Kennesaw State University and the University of Florida before joining YSU. Her research interests lie in the areas of (i) healthcare logistics and (ii) wind energy.
Dr. Fatemeh Ghasemzadeh
Fatemeh received her Ph.D. in Operations Management at Allameh Tabatabai University, Tehran, Iran. Since November 2019, she is working as postdoctoral research associate at Florida International University. After joining our research group, she started to focus on developing mathematical frameworks to model transmission of HAI infections.
Her additional research interests are disruption management in supply chains, healthcare and humanitarian logistics in disasters, and disease spread after disasters.
Current Graduate Students
Mohammad Amin Farzaneh
Mohammad is a graduate student in the Enterprise and logistics Engineering at Florida International University. He joined our research group in Fall 2017. He received his bachelor degree in Industrial and Systems engineering from Tehran University in Spring 2017. So far, he worked on several research projects such as "Online Coordination Mechanism for Road Infrastructure Restoration Using UAVs" & "Resilient Allocation of Water Conservation Actions in a Drought-Prone River Basin".
Jessica was born in Caracas Venezuela in September 1994. She received her bachelor's degree in Production Engineering from Universidad Metropolitana on June 2012. She joined our research group in Fall 2019 as a graduate research assistant. Her focus is on developing mathematical models to mitigate disruption propagation in road networks after disasters. She is using reinforcement learning techniques to optimize the recovery process for disrupted road networks.
Namrata received her bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), Bangladesh in 2018. She joined our research group in Fall 2020 as a graduate research assistant. Her focus is on designing a learning mechanism for events propagation modeling in meta-networks.
