● Kimia Ghobadi’s research includes the use of mathematical models, optimization, and analytics to solve problems in complex healthcare systems and medical decision-making. She also develops mathematical framework for inference models can be used in recognizing key factors that resulted in specific outcomes in network.
● Lauren Gardner’s research on the topic of bio-secure mobility utilizes network optimization and mathematical modeling to improve understanding of disease dynamics as a complex function of transportation systems, land use, climate, and population demographics. Her work also uses integrated simulation and optimization frameworks to solve resource-allocation problems.
● Lauren Gardner and Tak Igusa’s research on autonomous (self-driving) vehicles is focused on safety and other public health impacts, including the reduction of pollutants due to electrification, shared mobility, and efficient integration with public transportation.
● Tak Igusa’s focus on public health is characterized by the development of novel quantitative models that incorporates mechanistic and behavioral rules into a rigorous statistical form.
● Sauleh Siddiqui and Tak Igusa are working with engineers at APL on agent-based models for national defense systems as a complement to current systems engineering approaches.
