Ziyi “Francis” Yin - 尹梓屹

About me

I will be joining the subsurface innovation lab at Occidental Petroleum Corporation as a geophysicist resident.

I earned my PhD degree in Computational Science and Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in 2024, advised by Prof. Felix J. Herrmann. I earned my BSc degree in Mathematics and Computer Science at Emory University in 2019, advised by Prof. James G. Nagy.

A super high-level summary of my research is high-dimensional Bayesian inference for computationally expensive parameter-to-observable maps. Generally, my research interests include:

  • scientific machine learning
  • large-scale inverse problems
  • high-performance computing
  • PDE-constrained optimization
  • numerical modeling and simulation
  • uncertainty quantification
  • simulation-based inference
  • and their application in geophysical inversion
