My name is Kyle Schmitt, I am an undergrad finishing up my senior year in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  All my research at SBEL has aimed to combine three elements: complex dynamic systems, computer simulation, and uncertainty quantification.  My background in uncertainty quantification includes Monte Carlo sampling, Latin hypercube sampling, polynomial chaos, and Gaussian processes. In my third year at SBEL, I am working intently on a problem involving the modeling of random ice patches with Gaussian processes and the simulation of a non-linear vehicle on this type of terrain. This summer I will head to Argonne National lab to work on the optimal control of the described system. The following Fall, I will be beginning work on my Masters at MIT.
