Scientific computing, modeling, machine learning, and cosmology
My current research in computational cosmology was originally inspired by the similarity between the large-scale structure of the universe and human brain. Today, the fields of cosmology and neuroscience are also connected through the roles of computation, data, and modeling, which involve multi-faceted (physics and data-driven) approaches to unlock the mysteries of the universe to human cognition.
