My name is Izzy Aguiar!

I received my BS in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from the Colorado School of Mines in May 2017 and my MS in Computer Science from the University of Colorado, Boulder in August 2018.

Learn more about me in Julie Hayes’ Neural Network Spotlight.

I am currently a Visiting Researcher in the Stanford Autonomous Systems Lab working with Dr. Marco Pavone to develop interdisciplinary mathematical models to describe and measure the societal impacts of Autonomous Mobility-on-Demand systems. This research has the potential to rigorously prepare society for the advances of artificial intelligence (AI), to enable informed policy decisions that incorporate the impact of AI on our jobs, economy, neighborhoods, and public transportation, and to responsibly understand the impacts of our technology advances.

In the Fall I will join 50 magnificent students as a Knight-Hennessy Scholar while I pursue my PhD in Computational and Mathematical Engineering.

My research interests include dimension reduction, dynamical systems, uncertainty quantification, numerical linear algebra, humanistic mathematics, social mathematics, and science communication.
I also love drawing, writing, reading, sewing, painting, hiking, cooking, and traveling!

I’m passionate about interdisciplinary research, the power of education, and the importance of effective communication.
