I am a PhD student in Computational Science and Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Prof. Felix J. Herrmann. I work in SLIM (Seismic Laboratory for Imaging and Modeling) group mainly on robust and low-cost methods for time-lapse seismic monitoring of geological carbon storage.
In general, my research interests include (but not limited to)
- machine learning
- large-scale inverse problems
- scientific computing
- PDE-constrained optimization
- computational imaging
- uncertainty quantification
Before coming to Georgia Tech, I graduated from Emory University in 2019, with a summa cum laude Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I conducted research on regularization methods for image reconstruction from CT scans, advised by Prof. James G. Nagy and wrote my honors thesis, Edge Detection and Enriched Subspaces.
