Dr. Zehor Belkhatir received her MEng and M.Sc. degrees in Automatic Control Engineering from “École Nationale Polytechnique,” Algiers, Algeria, in 2012; and her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in 2018. Before joining De Montfort University in December 2020, she was a Lecturer in Control Engineering at the University of Leicester, and she also held a Postdoctoral Research Scholar position at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York, USA. Her research interests encompass work across the fields of applied mathematics, control systems theory, and data analysis. A common thread in her research is in understanding experimentally constrained complex systems by developing theoretical estimation and control techniques and computational tools that rely on mathematical or data-driven models. Some of the research projects she was involved in include, e.g., the control and estimation of infinite-dimensional and stochastic systems with an application to the characterization of the hemodynamic response in the brain and the chemotherapy drug scheduling problem; and also the development of robust predictive models for high-dimensional biological network and medical imaging data.
