Research Interest


1.      Big data analysis and statistical machine learning

2.     Predictive modeling and uncertainty quantification

3.     Scientific computing and computational fluid dynamics

4.     Stochastic multiscale modeling


My research interests include diverse topics in computational and predictive science and statistical learning both on algorithms and applications. A main current thrust is stochastic simulation (in the context of uncertainty quantification, statistical learning and beyond), and multiscale modeling of physical and biological systems (e.g., blood flow). My research goal is to develop high-order numerical algorithms to promote innovation with significant potential impact and design highly-scalable numerical solvers on petascale supercomputers to investigate new knowledge discovery and predictive modeling for critical decision making in complex physical and biological complex systems.
