About
I am a third year PhD student of applied mathematics at UCLA working under the supervision of Prof. Joseph Teran. My research interests are computational linear algebra, machine learning, and physics/PDE based simulation for computer graphics. I graduated with BS in Mathematics of Computation and MA in Mathematics from UCLA in 2019 under Departmental Scholars Program. I was Math Undergraduate Merit Scholarship recipient between 2015-2019 and gold medalist in 55th International Mathematical Olympiad in 2014.
Research and News
5/22: This Summer 22, I will join Epic Games as a physics programming intern. I will work on implementing ml for level set representations of objects in simulated world.
5/22: I passed my ATC.
2/21-5/22: Deep Gradient Correction Method I am working on a project that accelerates iterative linear system solvers with a deep convolutional neural network. More precisely, we are building a model that predicts search directions in conjugate gradients algorithm, which originally uses krylov vectors. Here is the poster from Citadel PhD Summit research presentation.
