The Computational and Statistical Material Science Lab | Lead: Kristofer Reyes
Our lab works at the interface of computation, mathematics, statistics, and materials science. We are specifically interested in meaningful machine learning in the small-data regime that dominates much of materials science. In this regime, we must be:
We work on Bayesian models, decision-making under uncertainty, reinforcement learning, and methods to fuse data with physics-based knowledge and expert opinion. We do not view materials science as a black-box source of “yet-another-dataset”. Instead, the field offers a rich problem setting filled with nuance and structure. We develop methods that appreciate this nuance and utilize such structure.
