**Name**: Akshunna S. Dogra, **Email**: adogra@nyu.edu **Links**: arXiv, Git, Google Scholar, Orcid

**Position**: President's Scholar, Dept. of Mathematics, Imperial College London **Also**: Group Leader, Mathephysics

**Fields of interest**: Applied Mathematics, Dynamical Systems Theory, Information Theory, Machine Learning, Mathematical Physics

**Research Philosophy**: I am a model maker looking for good problems and people. If you/I have a good idea/question/answer, lets make it better together. **Also**: Everything is a dynamical system if you are brave enough.

**Favorite Mathematics book**: *Proofs from the Book*, by M. Aigner, G. M. Ziegler** Favorite Physics book**: *Classical Theory of Fields*, L. D. Landau, E. M. Lifshitz

**Favorite historical figure**: Evariste Galois (revolutionized mathematics, fomented a revolution, and died stupidly for love in a duel before age 21). I don't advise emulating all his actions. But do try to cram as much life into your years as he did.

**An interesting, non-academia fact about me**: I own/co-designed/co-manage a subsistence farming operation (we produce the best ghee on the planet).
