Skamrava-2 Serveh Kamravah

Dr. Serveh Kamrava’s research is focused on using machine learning and multiscale modeling methods for solving problems related to porous media focused. The goal is to develop physics-guided machine learning methods that can integrate physical laws and available data at small- and large-scale systems. Dr. Kamrava’s group uses machine learning to discover physics when large data is available and the physical laws are not well known. The efficient ways of finding patterns in big data by integrating known physics into data-driven methods are also explored which requires using both machine learning methods and numerical simulations.
