Researcher in Scientific Computations, Stochastic Modeling, and Deep Learning


Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I am a researcher and practitioner in the areas of Scientific Machine Learning, Computational Mechanics, and Mechanics of Solids and Porous Media. My research interests include computational modeling and uncertainty quantification of engineering systems, and the use of artificial intelligence tools, including deep learning, in engineering analysis. I am currently a research scientist at Carbon Inc., working on modeling and optimization of lattice structures using FEM and DL methods.
