# About

I am a fifth year PhD student of applied mathematics at UCLA working under the supervision of Prof. Joseph Teran. I graduated with BS in Mathematics of Computation and MA in Mathematics from UCLA in 2019 under Departmental Scholars Program. I am the sole recipent of Math Undergraduate Merit Scholarship in class of 19' and gold medalist in 55th International Mathematical Olympiad in 2014.

My research interests are computational linear algebra and machine learning. In general, main focus of my projects has been to improve existing algorithms/methods that are used in physics-based simulations via learning-based approaches.Here is my CV (not very up to date) and one page resume.
