Homepage of Míriam R. García

My interest is the control of complex behaviours in medicine and the food industry using mechanistic mathematical models. The challenge lays on increasing the predictive capabilities of such mathematical models.
My usual mathematical methods and tools...
Model identification loop.
  • Structural identifiability and model discrimination.
  • Optimal experimental design.
  • Parameter estimation and sensitivity analysis.
  • Practical identificability analysis and confidence analysis.
  • Parameter Distributed Systems:
  • Reaction-diffusion systems.
  • Stochastic systems and the Fokker-Plank equation.
  • Simulation and reduced order model, optimization and state identification.
  • Real time optimization and predictive control of spatially distributed processes.
  • ...and the applications after my PhD
