Research Interests

  • ​​Uncertainty quantification: Efficient uncertainty quantification methods. In particular, for systems with correlated inputs and high-dimensional probability spaces.
  • Sensitivity analysis: Development of numerical methods to analyze the global sensitivity of the parameters.
  • Optimal experimental design to reduce the variance.
