Ayana Ghosh

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. She received her MS, PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Connecticut in the summer of 2020 and BS in Physics, Abstract Mathematics from the University of Michigan-Flint in spring of 2015.
