Yousef Oleyaeimotlagh is a second-year Ph.D. pre-candidate in the Department of Industrial Engineering (IE) at the University of Pittsburgh (PITT). He is working on his Ph.D. dissertation under the supervision of Dr. Taposh Banerjee. He uses techniques such as optimization, modeling, simulation, machine learning, big data, and stochastics in his research. His current Ph.D. advisor sparked his interest in the quickest anomaly detection in social, physical, and biological systems before joining PITT, as a GRA and student at the ECE department at the University of Texas, San Antonio, from January 2021 to August 2022. He was a GRA and student at UCF's IEMS department, where his main task was to develop ubiquitous computing and machine-learning applications for transportation data from 2016 to 2021.
