Xinchao Liu, a doctoral scholar within the Division of Industrial Engineering, obtained the 2nd prize within the Poster Competitors on the 2020 NextGen Knowledge Science Day convention. The convention was organized by the NextGen committee of the New England Statistical Society and was held nearly.
NextGen is an annual occasion involving all main faculties within the New England area, in addition to a couple of faculties outdoors the area and seeks to assist the subsequent era of statisticians and knowledge scientists. The convention, held Nov. 7, was the third annual gathering because the basis of the New England Statistical Society in 2017. The primary two have been held at Yale College and Bentley College, respectively.
Liu’s poster title is “Integration of Physics and Statistical Modeling: A Spatio-Temporal Mannequin for Nonlinear Structural Dynamics,” and represents joint work with Xiao Liu, of the College of Arkansas and Guang Lin from Purdue College.
Xinchao’s analysis focuses on the mixing of physics governing equation with time-variant operators into statistical studying. The target is to develop physics-informed, interpretable, and defensible data-driven approaches for aircraft-UAV airborne collision severity evaluation and prediction. The analysis employs trendy model-reduction methods, statistical studying, and operator inference methodologies that result in environment friendly and correct modeling of the nonlinear dynamics governing the high-dimensional spatio-temporal plane floor deformation course of. The analysis has efficiently demonstrated the persevering with penetration (of knowledge sciences) into the standard fields of engineering, which hinges on the convergence of area information into statistical studying.
Professor Xiao Liu, Xinchao’s advisor, commented “Contemplating the high-level competitors on this occasion, I’m very pleased with his placement. He has demonstrated great progress since starting in our program.”
The primary and third prizes went to the analysis groups from College of Massachusetts-Amherst and Northwestern College.
