I am a PhD student in the Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Scientific Computation (AMSC) program at The University of Maryland, College Park. I am advised by Maria Cameron and working closely with Furong Huang. My current research is in data-driven methods for understanding rare events in molecular dynamics and trustworthy machine learning. My recent research covers a broad range of topics including optimal control, model reduction, causality in machine learning and computational methods for differential equations.
