Field(s) of Interest

High performance computing, computational homogenization, machine learning, dimension reduction

Description of Your Work/Project in C-SWARM

I am working as part of the Computational Physics group to extend the framework of a reduced order model, utilizing dimension reduction techniques with neural networks and regression schemes. This will serve as a means of accelerating or even an alternative to computational homogenization, reducing computational expense and runtime of material simulations.
