Rashidi receives distinguished recognition as ‘Rising Stars (Engineering)’ from the Academy of Science, Engineering, and Medicine of Florida

Dr. Parisa Rashidi has achieved the distinguished recognition of Rising Stars (Engineering) from the Academy of Science, Engineering, and Medicine of Florida (ASEMFL). She received this recognition for visionary leadership in medical artificial intelligence.

The ASEMFL is an esteemed gathering of Florida’s preeminent scholars, encompassing individuals who both reside and work in the state. Situated at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, ASEMFL is a non-profit organization that unites top-tier scholars and researchers hailing from various universities, public agencies, and industries throughout Florida. Their collective mission is to delve into critical issues at the intersection of science, engineering, and medicine that have a direct impact on the people of Florida. Furthermore, they provide impartial and expert advice concerning these matters.

Dr. Rashidi’s research aims to develop intelligent patient monitoring systems using artificial intelligence and sensing technology. Her research methodology is to develop scalable machine learning techniques to tackle challenging problems that arise in the context of intelligent patient monitoring systems. In the inpatient setting, her lab is working on transforming patient care in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) by developing autonomous monitoring tools for incorporating granular and autonomous visual assessments, and for prediction of the acuity state of patients in real-time. In the outpatient setting, she is developing intelligent tools for monitoring cognitive and mental health of community-dwelling patients using wearable and digital sensor technology powered by machine learning.
