research topics :
  • Design of experiments (including nonlinear models and uncertain inputs or experiment parameters - common random factors)
  • Inverse analysis (determinitic as well as probabilistic identification of nonlinear model parameters, Bayesian updating as well as stochastic inversion)
  • Stochastic optimization (genetic algorithms, simulated annealing)
  • Surrogate models and approximations (polynomial chaos, neural networks, radial basis functions)
  • Random microstructure characterization (statistical descriptors, Wang tiles)
