Muhammad Firmansyah Kasim

I am a Ph.D. student in plasma physics at the University of Oxford. As a graduate from the electrical engineering department of the Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), Indonesia, I love to explore things especially in machine learning and optimization. My first encounter with optimization was in ISCSO 2014 and I am getting more and more interested in optimization since then. I am currently involved in a research study on the infinite dimensional optimistic optimization approach and its application in physical systems.
