Faria Nassiri-Mofakham joins CWI/Acumex team
We are proud and thrilled to announce, that Faria Nassiri-Mofakham has joined the CWI/Acumex team.
Faria holds a PhD and a BSc degree in computer engineering and mathematics from the University of Isfahan where she has been an assistant professor for the past 8 years.
Specializing in Autonomous Negotiations, Strategic Decision Making and Mechanism Design in online auctions and markets, Faria’s research focuses on the inter-disciplinary mix of AI with sociology, economics, psychology and management.
The current position is a 3-year research position in the intelligent and autonomous systems group in a public-private partnership between CWI and Acumex. The target is autonomous negotiation agents for online peer-to-peer trading and Faria Nassiri-Mofakham has a clear perception of the project ahead:
"Our goal is two-fold, both theoretical and applied, by developing algorithms for testing and applying them on the Acumex's platform. I enjoy working with both CWI and Acumex, since the appointment involves me in research and coding for a pioneering project which could benefit real industries and targeting customers."
Negotiation Agent (NA) technology has the potential to radically change how organizations source, procure and negotiate commodities, goods and services. It can be applied in any market from optimization of closed electrical grids over traditional procurement to property trading.
"Starting the collaboration with CWI is an important step forward in the journey that Acumex has taken for realizing its vision. We are engineering systems that will take the process of trading goods to the next level and we are proud of engaging in this journey with the world of academia, specifically with CWI", states Acumex CTO Flavio Gaier.
"We believe in technology and in rooting it in solid theoretical approach and mathematical models. We are very happy to start this journey of research and exploration of new grounds, as well as application of discoveries, with Faria. We are sure that her background, together with skills and great capabilities will be an important part to our success."
