Andrea Martin is a current Ph.D. student in the Intelligent Systems and Robotics program at UWF. A native of Bogotá, Colombia, she moved to New Orleans to study electrical engineering and psychology at the University of New Orleans. After graduation, she became a Ph.D. student in computer science at Tulane University before joining the IHMC/UWF program.
Her research focuses on merging AI techniques and psychological theories. In the past, she designed an algorithm that predicts people’s preferences and determines decision-making over combinatorially-structured domains. She is working on designing a model that describes and explores the connection between how people make choices, the process of matching and the notion of stability and fairness.
Her research interests include artificial intelligence, knowledge representation, decision-making theories and machine learning. She is currently a data scientist at Intuit.
