Position Summary: The Structural Materials Division of the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) is seeking a researcher with experience in applied and computational mathematics to work on Air Force funded research programs. The successful candidate will work with engineers and scientists to develop and apply quantitative and analytical methods to material systems relevant to nondestructive evaluation (NDE). A major goal of the current project is to utilize Matching Component Analysis (MCA) as a method of segmenting and registering the data from sensors of various modality. Prior work has shown that MCA can be used to enhance classification performance over traditional machine learning algorithms. We will explore this algorithm as a way of combining data to segment boundaries between regions of varying material property within the sample data set to develop a new machine learning tool for data segmentation and registration. The output of the algorithm will be used as an informative structural prior for Bayesian estimation of the relevant material property within the sensor field of view. The researcher would be working on advancements of the MCA algorithm and development of a Bayesian inversion routine for NDE characterization.
