Aretha Teckentrup is a lecturer (equivalent to tenured assistant professor) at the University of Edinburgh in the UK. Her research interests are at the interface of numerical analysis, statistics and data science, in the areas of uncertainty quantification and Bayesian inverse problems. Recently, her focus has been on the development and analysis of multilevel sampling methods, and the numerical analysis of Gaussian process emulators in the context of surrogate models in Bayesian inverse problems.

Impact of DiaMonD

Aretha was a postdoctoral research associate with Max Gunzburger at Florida State University, and partially supported by DiaMonD. DiaMonD was a unique opportunity for Aretha to interact with world-class scientists, and the time at Florida State University gave her the chance to apply her expertise in multilevel sampling methods in the new context of collocation methods and sparse grid quadrature.
