Ana Maria Estrada Gomez

I am a 5th year Ph. D. candidate in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, at the Georgia Institute of Technology, adviced by Dr. Kamran Paynabar. I received my bachelor's degrees in Industrial Engineering and Mathematics from Universidad de los Andes in 2013 and 2015, respectively. I also hold an M. Sc. in Industrial Engineering from Universidad de los Andes (2015), and an M. Sc. in Statistics from Georgia Institute of Technology (2018).

My research interests lie in developing efficient methodologies and algorithms for modeling and monitoring sensing systems with high-dimensional data, using statistics and machine learning tools. I focus on addressing analytical, computational, and scalability challenges associated with the study of interconnected systems with complex data structures. The methods I have developed have been applied in the manufacturing, service, and healthcare sectors. I am passionate about teaching. My main goal is to have a positive impact on students’ lives. I want them to learn how to use analytical tools and quantitative thinking for decision making. I was recently appointed as a LATinE Fellow by Purdue´s College of Engineering, and I have been selected as a Graduate Teaching Fellow at Georgia Tech for two consecutive years.
