Research Interests

My research interests are focused on process monitoring and quality control of advanced manufacturing and service systems through the integrated applications of sensing technology, engineering domain knowledge and advanced data analytics.

  • Data analytics for advanced manufacturing process/system improvement: quality characterization and quantification; sensor/microscopic images data collection; nondestructive inspection and monitoring; physical process modeling and statistical calibration.
  • Data driven system fault detection, diagnosis and prognostics: changes detection; root causes identification; integration of reliability theory, statistical modeling with engineering/domain knowledge for fault management in manufacturing, energy and service systems.
  • Bayesian and stochastic filtering for engineering system control and improvement: spatial or temporal modeling of processes; Bayesian inference of state space models; sequential Monte Carlo method development.
