About

I am a second year graduate student at Caltech pursuing a Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Mathematic. My adviser is Professor Andrew M. Stuart. I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1993 and obtained a B. Sc. in Mathematics from Caltech in 2016. I am especially interested in rigorous theories of machine learning and ai, deep learning, applied and foundational probability theory, PDE modeling, dynamical systems, Bayesian data assimilation and inverse problems, functional analysis, as well as any beautiful mathematics useful or otherwise. One can view my CV if interested.

I also enjoy spending time with my wife and dog, travelling, hiking, cooking, baking, and programming.
