A. H. Fernando is a doctoral student working with Prof. Richard O'Shaughnessy at the Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG). Fernando's primary interests lie in the intersection of astrophysics, quantum field theory, relativity, and cosmology with a secondary focus on imaging instrumentation. In his current work he collaborates with his research team to build novel mathematical and computational tools using first-principled and data-oriented approaches. Before coming to RIT, Fernando has worked in academia as well as in multiple industries for several years.
