Welcome to Mitra Baratchi's
website

I'm a data scientist who loves applying machine learning and data mining techniques to solve real world problems. I design algorithms for spatio-temporal pattern mining. Currently, my research is focused on realizing automated situation-awareness from ubiquitously collected mobility data.

As of August 2017, I work as an assistant professor in Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) at Leiden University. Previously, I worked as a post doctoral researcher in Design and Analysis of Communication Systems (DACS) group at University of Twente in the Living Smart campus project .

Before joining DACS, I was the project leader of SaxShirt project in Ambient Intelligence group (AMI) at Saxion University of Applied Sciences. I received my PhD degree from Pervasive Systems (PS) group at University of Twente on analysing mobility data. Before coming to the Netherlands, I completed both my Master’s and Bachelor’s studies in computer engineering in Iran.

It has been a while since my life has started to go on with a fast pace but I have always saved some time for my hobbies. I’m an art and culture lover, I swim, I love traveling to exotic places, and watching good movies from all around the world.

Next to these, I play classical violin for some years now. Back home I also had traditional Persian violin training.
