Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Introduction to Machine Learning

I can walk students through the basics of machine learning, tailored to the level of math of the student. We can then devise an application-based project together based on the student's interests. This could involve applying language models to analyze text datasets (a past project I have mentored involved automatically processing scientific literature to build a table of processing conditions for solid-state materials), computer vision models to analyze images (a past project I have mentored involved using satellite imagery to make predictions about solar power generation), or the models I use in my research to create simulations of physical processes such as chemical reactions.
