Our research falls under the general category of industrial data science, or engineering system informatics. Two focus areas of engineering applications of our lab are: wind energy and material & manufacturing. Industrial data science research tackles engineering system problems with a full mind of the rapidly growing capability for data collection, the same capability creating the era of big data. There is a pressing need to develop sophisticated statistical and computational methodologies that enable and assist
- the handling of the rich data streams communicated by complex engineering systems,
- the extraction of pertinent knowledge about the environmental and operational dynamics driving these systems, and
- the exploitation of the acquired knowledge for enhanced design, analysis, and control.
Unlike purely data-driven approaches, our research emphasizes the integration of engineering system modeling and data science methods, thereby enhancing the capability of engineering decision making.
