What conference theme areas are you interested in:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for science and engineering;

Applications in science, engineering, and industry;
High-order methods, novel discretizations, and scalable solvers;
High-performance computing, emerging architectures and programming paradigms


At this stage I am mostly interested in exploring different areas of applied math. Some of these are climate and other physics/PDE numerical models, machine learning and scientific computing. Right now I work on finite element/volume/difference modeling, and I am interested in learning about other applications and techniques in that general field.

Non-Work Related Activities/Interests:

Hobbies: Anything outside (backpacking, climbing etc), music
