Ashwin Renganathan
Lab – Computational complex engineered Systems Design Laboratory (CSDL)

Developing scalable computational methods for the design of next-generation complex engineered systems, such as aircraft. Specifically, we develop simulation-based design methods, where the goal is to make system-level design decisions in the presence of uncertainty and high-dimensional design spaces, with computationally expensive models of the system. Our research strives to make the design of complex engineered systems faster, cheaper, and more reliable. In this regard, we use and develop methods in approximation theory, optimization, and uncertainty quantification.
