Teresa's interests lie in developing techniques for validation and uncertainty quantification of models for complex systems as well as computational methods for large-scale inverse problems and Bayesian inference. She works in Dr. Robert Moser’s Center for Predictive Engineering and Computational Science (PECOS) developing a representation for predictive uncertainty caused by model inadequacy. She is currently developing an uncertainty representation to account for missing microstate information when using a gradient-diffusion closure model for contaminant dispersion through a heterogeneous porous medium.
