Mohammad Farazmand is a post-doctoral researcher working on the quantification of extreme events in fluid flows. He received his Ph.D. in 2014 in Mathematics from ETH where he worked on a variational approach to coherent structures in unsteady dynamical systems. He then spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow in Georgia Institute of Technology (School of Physics) where he worked on adjoint-based approaches for determining invariant solutions to Navier-Stokes equations.

Antoine Blanchard is a post-doctoral researcher working on reduced-order modeling of fluid flows. He received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) in 2017. His dissertation focused on computational and analytical studies of vortex-induced vibration of bluff bodies with nonlinear and dissipative attachments. Prior to joining Illinois, Antoine received his B.S. and M.S. from Ecole Centrale in France. His research interests include nonlinear dynamics and computational fluid mechanics.
Zhong Yi Wan is a fourth-year graduate student studying data-driven, reduced-order modeling of extreme events in turbulent systems. He is pursuing a Doctoral degree in Computation for Design and Optimization (CDO). Before joining MIT, Zhong received his Bachelor of Applied Science degree from University of Toronto in Canada, majoring in Aerospace Engineering. His other interests include numerical techniques, machine learning methods and stochastic modeling.
