Hi, I’m Ian Jahanpour. I’m a swimmer, a runner, and a programmer. I did my education in Civil Engineering at 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. Here are the highlights of my work in optimization:

  • a free optimization API called Optoria,
  • a free web-app called ResOS,
  • co-founded a business based on optimization (AnyPLOS),
  • published about optimization, and
  • ranked first in both 2016 and 2018 black-box optimization competitions.
