Prof. Michael Shields Receives a U.S. Department of Energy Early Career Award

August 6, 2019

Congratulations to Prof. Michael Shields on receiving a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Early Career Award! Prof. Shields’s project, titled, “Low-dimensional Manifold Learning for Uncertainty Quantification in Complex Multi-scale Stochastic Systems” leverages large-scale so-called dimension hyper-reduction methods to enable uncertainty quantification for complex multi-scale systems. The advanced modeling approach is likely to be more computationally […]
