Abstract: I will describe recent developments from my group on physics-inspired AI for gravitational wave astrophysics, and multi-scale and multi-physics complex systems; generative AI for the discovery of novel metal-organic frameworks for carbon capture; and the development of scientific data infrastructure to enable a seamless use of foundation AI models on supercomputing platforms for open science. I will highlight common trends and convergence among these activities.

Bio: Eliu Huerta is Lead for Translational AI and Computational Scientist in the Data Science and Learning Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He is a theoretical astrophysicist, mathematician and computer scientist with broad research interests. He has done pioneering work at the interface of physics-inspired AI, scientific visualization and extreme scale computing for multi-messenger astrophysics, cosmology, observational astronomy, large scale simulations that describe multi-scale and multi-physics phenomena, including recent developments in AI for materials science and biophysics. Huerta received a Master of Advanced Study in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and a PhD in Theoretical Astrophysics from the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. He enjoys doing translational AI research across disciplines, industry, finance and tech. He has published hundreds of peer-reviewed articles, and mentored tens of high school, undergraduate and graduate students.
