November 04, 2022 - by Sarah Igram
Parvin Mohammadiarvejeh is a third-year Ph.D. student at Iowa State in Industrial Engineering. She will showcase her research during next week's final Three Minute Thesis competition with her presentation, "Developing Machine Learning and Optimization Models to Recognize Super-Agers."
Q: What brought you to Iowa State?
A: My friend and chance.
Q: Describe your research in three sentences or less.
A: I work on predictive models to recognize Super-Agers from Cognitive Decliners using blood biomarkers and brain measures. My research discovers the most important features, causal association between the biomarkers and brain structure. This research helps to mitigate Alzheimer Disease or even improve cognitive function as humans age.
Q: What do you hope to gain from Three Minute Thesis?
A: I hope to improving my presentation skills, learn how to control my stress, and gain happiness.
Q: Share a fun fact about yourself.
A: I drink cinnamon tea every day because I love it.
Founded at the University of Queensland, Three Minute Thesis (3MT) challenges graduate students to present their research to a non-specialist audience in three minutes or less. Iowa State's eight finalists will compete in our final competition on Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. You can watch a livestream of the event on the Graduate College's Facebook page.
