Math Postdoctoral Scholar Honored as a Rising Star in Computational and Data Sciences

A mathematics postdoctoral research associate at the University of Tennessee Knoxville has been named one of the top 25 women in Computational and Data Sciences by Rising Stars 2020.

Farzana Nasrin

Farzana Nasrin will present at Rising Stars 2020, a workshop for women graduate students and postdocs who are interested in pursuing academic and research careers. Rising Stars workshops, originally launched at MIT in 2012, are small and intensive. This year the workshop will be hosted by UT Austin's Oden Institute for computational Engineering and Sciences and Sandia National Laboratories. This event will bring 25 top women in Computational and Data Sciences for sharing their research work and vision through presentations, poster sessions and interactive discussions about academic and research career.

Farzana Nasrin is holding a postdoctoral research position funded by the Army Research Office. Her research activities are primarily focused on developing advanced algorithms engaging statistics and machine learning with topology and geometry. She has been working on building novel classifiers that rely on the shape peculiarities of data with application to biology, materials science, neuroscience, and ophthalmology. Farzana's research has been widely disseminated across multiple prominent outlets such as the SIAM Journal on Mathematics of Data Science, IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, and the Annals of Fuzzy Mathematics and Informatics.

Farzana received her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Texas Tech University in August 2018 with a specialization in biomedical image analysis, computational mathematics, and data analysis. She joined Professor Vasileios Maroulas's research group as a postdoctoral research associate in UTK Mathematics Department.
