Farzaneh is a Post-Doctoral Associate in Management Science at the Ivey Business School. Her education is in Industrial and Systems Engineering. She has research experience in the application of optimization and simulation techniques (System Dynamics) on solving policy problems in different disciplines, including transportation (MSc. research) and Energy Systems Planning (PhD research). As a systems modeler, she is interested in improving decisions and policies in an uncertain and complex environment using quantitative and qualitative models, forecasting and econometrics models, data analysis, systems thinking, scenario and exploratory analysis, specially in interdisciplinary contexts.
Her research at Ivey is focused on modeling Health Care Problems under supervision of Dr. Lauren Cipriano. Farzaneh is contributing to a team in developing a model to study the health and economic impacts of long-term policies that support economic and social activity in the context of the continuing COVID-19 global pandemic. The model seeks to incorporate health, population and economic/industrial specifications of regions in order to suggest community-tailored polices.
