Research Interests:
Model Validation
Uncertainty Quantification
Information Fusion
Nonlinear Filtering
Decision Making under Uncertainty

My research interests lie primarily in the field of model validation and uncertainty quantification, information fusion, and decision making under uncertainty. These include topics such as:

  • Bayesian inference and model validation of complex physical systems, including optimal experimental design using information theoretic concepts.
  • Improving the decision making under uncertainty using accurate uncertainty representations and goal-oriented propagation of uncertainty through computational models.
  • Near-real time data assimilation with applications to evolution of toxic clouds in air as result of chemical and biological releases.
  • Applications of machine learning concepts to reduce the dimensionality of complex uncertainty quantification problems.


Recent/Upcoming Events:

  • Grant: (PI) NSF-IUSE project focused on developing statistical models to track student knowledge, suggest remedial interventions, and guide future examinations in cornerstone engineering classes with high student-to-faculty ratios. Joint work with Juan Caicedo and Charles Pierce (Civil Engineering @ University of South Caroline).
  • Grant: (Co-PI) NSF-DMREF project focused on linking experiments and theory in a rigorous manner using Bayesian statistics to accelerate the design and discovery of novel multimetallic catalysts for biorefinery industry. Joint work with Andreas Heyden and Salai Ammal (Chemical Engineering @ University of South Carolina) and Jesse Bond (Biomedical and Chemical Engineering @ Syracuse University).
