Thank you for visiting my website. I take the liberty of assuming that you’re interested in knowing a few intimate details on its author. My name is Andrew Abi-Mansour. I am a computational physical chemist who enjoys solving challenging problems in chemical and physical science using tools from numerical analysis, machine learning, inverse theory, and mathematical optimization to name a few. I am currently working as a postdoc at the center for materials science & engineering at Merck. My research involves the simulation of powder systems using the discrete element method. My projects page summarizes some of the main computational tools I have worked on over the years. You can check out my LinkedIn profile if you’d like to know more about my academic background. When I am not doing research, I am either failing miserably in playing the saxophone or frying my raspberry pi in my hopeless attempt to build yet another robot. I am also a PC enthusiast who enjoys building gaming rigs for fun.
