What do I do?

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

An example of applications is the theoretical foundation of machine learning:

  • the design and analysis of optimization, sampling, and deep learning algorithms

  • AI for science, such as the learning and forecast of dynamics from data, and ML assisted scientific computing

  • quantitative understanding of deep learning practices

Interested in joining the team?

We already have an excellent team, but positions can still be created for exceptional candidates interested in PhD / postdoc training and collaboration at the intersection of machine learning, computational math, dynamics (and control), and stochastic processes. Examples of relevant Ph.D. programs include Math, CSE, ACO, and Machine Learning (feel free to email if you're unsure which to apply to).
