Erin C. DeCarlo, Ph.D.

Research Engineer, Southwest Research Institute

Erin C. DeCarlo, Ph.D. is a Research Engineer in the Mechanical Engineering Division at Southwest Research Institute. Her research focuses on understanding the impact of uncertainty on design performance and making uncertainty-informed decisions using advanced probabilistic methods. Her work in response surface modeling and Bayesian statistics addresses the fundamental challenges of the computational expense of complex, multidisciplinary simulations, and uncertainty due to limited data in order to guide activities to target and reduce uncertainties.

At Southwest Research Institute, Dr. DeCarlo leads and provides her expertise on projects that involve probabilistic analysis, uncertainty quantification and reduction, and validation of both statistical and physics-based models. She received her Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Vanderbilt University in 2017 and recently co-led SwRI’s webinar series on “Probabilistic Analysis and Uncertainty Quantification”.
