MEET THE LECTURER: ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR YOUSSEF MARZOUK
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Youssef Marzouk is an associate professor in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Director of MIT’s Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory. He is also co-director of educational programs for the MIT Centre for Computational Engineering and a member of MIT’s new Statistics and Data Science Centre.
His research focuses on uncertainty quantification, inverse problems, statistical inference, and large-scale Bayesian computation for complex physical systems, and on using these approaches to address modelling challenges in energy conversion and environmental applications. He received his SB (1997), SM (1999), and PhD (2004) degrees in mechanical engineering from MIT, and spent several years at Sandia National Laboratories before joining the MIT faculty in 2009. He is a recipient of the Hertz Foundation Doctoral ThesisPrize (2004), the Sandia Laboratories Truman Fellowship (2004-2007), the US Department of Energy Early Career Research Award (2010), and the Junior Bose Award for Teaching Excellence from the MIT School of Engineering (2012). He serves on the editorial boards of several journals, including the SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing and the SIAM/ASA Journal on Uncertainty Quantification.
