Greg McRae's Research Group

Our current research is loosely organized around decision making under uncertain conditions. Examples include:

  • How to choose between different technologies?
  • How to identify those process parameters and inputs that have the most impact on the process performance (yield, profits,…)?
  • How to allocate development resources to reduce the time to market?
  • How to extract the best estimates of parameter values from experiments?

To address these questions, we are developing methods to represent uncertainty, and characterize the effects of uncertainty on models.
