Farhad Pourkamali is currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver). He earned his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder), where he subsequently completed a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Applied Mathematics. Prior to his current role, he served as an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UMass Lowell) from 2018 to 2022. In 2021, he received the Visiting Faculty Research Program (VFRP) award from the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI). Since the fall of 2022, he has been a part of CU Denver, where he leads the Mathematics, Information, and Data Science (MINDS) Lab. His main emphasis is on advancing machine learning techniques to reduce the necessity for human input, enhance their computational and statistical efficiency, and create accessible cyberinfrastructure resources. He is committed to addressing practical problems in various domains, including materials science and natural hazards analysis, and is actively seeking opportunities for collaboration.
