Welcome to my Home Page

I am an assistant professor in the department of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the Mathematics group led by James Sethian, working primarily with Lin Lin. Before, I was a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Irvine, working with Pr. Hongkai Zhao. I graduated in June 2015 from MIT with a Ph.D. in Mathematics under the direction of Pr. Laurent Demanet. I am a former student of École Polytechnique and University Pierre et Marie Curie Paris VI.

I am particularly interested in Machine Learning, Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, Wave Propagation and Inverse Problems. My research has three main venues:

My current projects are applications of deep learning to scientific computing, using neural networks to accelerate molecular dynamics, and second order optimization methods for machine learning; fast solvers for the Helmholtz equation, and new numerical methods for quantum chemistry, in particular, numerical methods for bath parametrization within the DMFT framework.
