I think MATDENSE for GPUs is a good idea. In that vein, I would like to
work on operator
representation (same thing as Deep O-Net, FNO) except from a slightly
different point of view.

In a completely different direction, I would like to work on running simple
simulations (heat flow,
elastic stress) over CAD geometries from industry. Getting this workflow
right is the first step
toward design optimization.

What most experimenters take for granted before they begin their
experiments is infinitely more interesting than any results to which their
experiments lead.
