What do I do?

As an applied & computational mathematician, I design and apply mathematical tools from nonlinear dynamics, probability, geometry, multiscale methods, numerical analysis and computational math, and control theory to solve practical problems.

An instance of applications is the mathematical foundation of machine learning, for which I'm interested in, for example,

  • sampling, optimal transport, and (diffusion) generative modeling

  • deep learning, and optimization

  • scientific machine learning

Interested in joining the team?

2 PhD student positions are available for training and collaboration: 1 on scientific machine learning (a.k.a. AI4Science), and 1 on deep learning (a.k.a. theory). Feel free to email or indicate an interest in working with me in your application, if you are highly motivated about at least one of these areas. Examples of relevant Ph.D. programs include Math, CSE, Machine Learning, and ACO (email if uncertain).
