Wuchen Li awarded Air Force Award

Dr. Li wins award through 2023 Air Force Young Investigator Research Program


Dr. Li's project is on "Transport information geometric computations."  YIP recipients are awarded $450,000 for three years. 

The project develops new computational algorithms with theoretical guarantees for machine learning-induced scientific computations. It creates interactive studies among optimal transport, information geometry, and mean-field games, which construct parametric approximations of evolutionary partial differential equations. Furthermore, it introduces fast, efficient, and mathematical-safe variational schemes for computational fluid dynamics. Typical examples include linear, nonlinear Fokker- Planck equations and mean-field control problems. Besides, it also offers new models and efficient methods for studying a large number of population behaviors. In applications, it provides predictions on controlling pandemic evolutions and robotics path planning problems. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
