Summary of Research

In the first year of my graduate program, I have been interested in inverse problems and uncertainty quantification, especially with applications in medical and atmospheric imaging. Currently, under the mentorship of Julianne and Tia Chung, I am working with autoencoder networks that can supplement traditional inverse problem techniques (in UQ and regularization, for example). More broadly in my research, and throughout my PhD, I hope to learn more methodologies of numerical linear algebra and ways that they can be applied to solve problems in engineering and sustainability.
