Research Scientist



Dr. Ghosh's research focuses on data-driven and machine learning approaches combined with the state-of-the-art first principles methods to study complex material systems. In particular, she has interests in developing physics-based machine learning frameworks to investigate causal mechanisms in a wide range of materials ranging from inorganic perovskites, actinides, 2D systems to organic crystals and polymers. Bridging the gap between appropriately utilizing data generated by simulations and experiments require a great deal of understanding the nuances present in both fields, which is the ultimate goal of her efforts.
