Mohammad Noorbakhsh

I am a PhD student at the Mathematics for Real-World Systems CDT, based in the Centre for Complexity Science. The purpose of my research is to improve the predictability of meteorological drought in Africa with time lead of 12 months using data-driven approaches. It is supervised by Professor Colm Connaughton and Dr Francisco A. Rodrigues.

Before joining Mathsys, I had been working in the financial services industry for several years.

My research interests are Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Time Series, and Causality applied in real-world problems such as climate and finance. their applications in other scientific fields.
