Hi, I’m Ian Jahanpour. I’m a swimmer, a runner, and a programmer. I am doing a PhD program in Civil Engineering in University of Waterloo, Canada.

My passion is working on optimization algorithms with a focus on uncertainty. I've been working on computationally intensive problems in control and optimization.

I love learning new aspects of programming.

Since 2009, optimization has always been a major part of my work.

  • I've created optimization web-apps (ResOS),
  • co-founded a business based on optimization (AnyPLOS),
  • published about optimization, and
  • ranked first in both 2016 and 2018 black-box optimization competitions.

    Here is a place to share the highlights of my work.
