Jerry McMahan Jr.
Welcome to my webpage at NCSU. I am a postdoc in applied mathematics working with
Ralph Smith. I am currently researching methods to improve the uncertainty
quantification for predictive simulation of oscillatory systems and systems with model discrepancies.
I am also developing code for the validation of Bayesian calibration routines in the software packages
My dissertation research involved several computational and design problems related to the control
and simulation of smart materials exhibiting hysteretic nonlinearities.
Research Interests: Applied analysis, scientific computing, uncertainty quantification, control theory,
numerical analysis, nonlinear systems, and inverse problems.
Update (May 29, 2014): I have accepted a two-year postdoctoral position through the
University of Dayton Research Institute carried out at the Air Force Research Laboratory
in the Dayton, Ohio area. I will be working on developing, verifying, and applying
mathematical and computational methods for uncertainty quantification and the solution
of inverse problems related to non-destructive evaluation and materials science.
Here are some incomplete notes I wrote a while back:
My neglected personal website is ensomnya.net. It houses a few projects and drawings I did a while back.
