About me

My name is Pu Ren. I am a Postdoc Fellow in Machine Learning and Analytics Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, where I am working with Prof. Michael Mahoney. I also work closely with Dr. Dmitriy Morozov and Prof. Ben Erichson. My research interests lie in scientific machine learning, with a focus on the interplay between numerical methods and machine learning. In specific, I am interested in Neural ODEs and Physics-informed/encoded deep learning: soft/hard constraints in optimization, scientific data augmentation and equation discovery.

I received my PhD at Northeatern University in July 2022, where I worked with Prof. Hao Sun and Prof. Ryan Wang. I was also fortunate to collaborate with Prof. Jerome F. Hajjar, Prof. Yang Liu and Prof. Jian-Xun Wang.
