Session 8: Evaluating LLMs and Potential Pitfalls

  • Bethany Lusch (LCF)
  • Marieme Ngom (LCF)
  • Sandeep Madireddy (MCS)


Based on their understanding of LLMs from the series, trainees will engage in dialogue on evaluating LLMs and their potential limitations.

Bethany Lusch is a Computer Scientist in the data science group at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility at Argonne National Lab. Her research expertise includes developing methods and tools to integrate AI with science, especially for dynamical systems and PDE-based simulations. Her recent work includes developing machine-learning emulators to replace expensive parts of simulations, such as computational fluid dynamics simulations of engines and climate simulations. She is also working on methods that incorporate domain knowledge in machine learning, representation learning, and using machine learning to analyze supercomputer logs. She holds a Ph.D. and MS in applied mathematics from the University of Washington and a BS in mathematics from the University of Notre Dame.

Marieme Ngom is an Assistant Computer Scientist at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility. Her research interests include probabilistic machine learning, high-performance computing, and dynamical systems modeling with applications in chemical engineering and material sciences. Ngom received her Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. David Nicholls. Marieme holds an MSc in mathematics from the University of Paris-Saclay (formerly Paris XI), an MSc in computer science from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, and an MEng in computer science and applied mathematics from the École nationale supérieure d’électrotechnique, d’électronique, d’informatique, d’hydraulique et des télécommunications (ENSEEIHT) in Toulouse.
