Bio: Katayoun Farrahi is a lecturer in the ECS department at the University of Southampton working in the vision, learning and control VLC Group. The focus of her research is on machine learning applied to large scale mobile phone and wearable sensor datasets. Much of her research has focused on mobile phone data. She also works on mobile phone sensed data-driven applications, basically applications which can make use of human behaviour knowledge extracted from mobile sensed data. One example is the simulation of epidemics from mobile phone sensed physical proximity data. Prior to joining Southampton, Katayoun was a research assistant at Idiap Research Institute. She obtained her PhD in Computer Science from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in 2011.
