My past research has been on optical metrology and the use of real time measurement and analysis for process control in manufacturing.  More recently my interest has focused on measurement uncertainty and how to deal with it.  This includes the fundamental sources of noise, error, and uncertainty as well as analysis and design of equipment and algorithms for reducing them.
