Bianca Champenois

Hello! My name is Bianca. I am a PhD candidate at MIT in the joint Mechanical Engineering and Computational Science/Engineering program. I work with Professor Sapsis in the SAND Lab (Stochastic Analysis and Nonlinear Dynamics) on new methods to model ocean and atmospheric processes. I am curious about all things related to machine learning, reduced-order modeling, uncertainty quantification, Bayesian inference, fluid dynamics, numerical methods, and extreme events. In my free time, I like to fix bikes and make comics. Here is my resume.


[Dec. '23] My first first-author paper was published in Physica D: Nonlinear Phenomena.
[Dec. '23] I presented my work on output-weighted active learning for extreme weather events at AGU in San Francisco.
[July '23] I attended the MIT Portugal Marine Robotics Summer School.
[May '23] I was awarded the Meredith Kamm Memorial Award (Excellence in a Woman Graduate Student) and the Clement F. Burnap Award (Outstanding Master of Science in the Marine Field).
[May '23] My poster won 3rd place in the category of "Graduate Science" at the MechE De Florez Competition.
[Apr. '23] My research was featured in Spectrum.
[May '22] I submitted my master's thesis.
[Dec. '21] I presented my work on making high-resolution models of coastal ocean temperature at AGU in New Orleans.
[Apr. '20] I was awarded the NSF GRFP.
