Welcome to Professor Maryam Kamgarpour

We welcome Professor Maryam Kamgarpour as a new IAM faculty affiliate.

Maryam completed her doctoral studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and her undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo.  Maryam calls Vancouver home: “I am happy to return to my high school city of Vancouver and join UBC.”

Maryam’s theoretical research is inspired by problems arising in engineering applications, and has recently studied problems in safe optimization and learning, learning equilibria in games and bandit problems, mechanism design and safe stochastic control.  She recently joined the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as Assistant Professor. Below are some of Maryam’s recent publications. A full publication lists is available at Maryam’s website.
