Youssef Marzouk is a professor in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT and co-director of the MIT Center for Computational Science and Engineering. He is also a core member of MIT’s Statistics and Data Science Center and director of MIT’s Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory. His research interests lie at the intersection of computation and statistical inference with physical modeling. He develops new methodologies for uncertainty quantification, Bayesian modeling and computation, data assimilation, experimental design, and machine learning in complex physical systems. His methodological work is motivated by a wide variety of engineering and environmental applications. He is an avid coffee drinker and occasional classical pianist.
