Research Overview

Professor Owhadi focuses on the modeling and analysis of systems characterized by multiple scales, geometric structures, noise and uncertainties. At the center of his work are fundamental problems such as non-separated scales, anomalous diffusion, the geometric integration of multi-scale stochastic mechanical systems and the optimal quantification of uncertainties in presence of limited information.
