Jorge Pérez Zerpa
Jorge Pérez Zerpa obtained a Doctorate in Engineering degree by Universidad de la República in Uruguay, a MSc in Mechanical Engineering degree by Universidade Federal de Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, and did a stage at INRIA's TAO team in France. He is Assistant Professor at the Structures Department of the School of Engineering in Universidad de la República, and Researcher level 1 at ANII.uy . His research work includes the development and application of numerical methods in computational modelling of solids and structures, with focus in constitutive parameter identification methods. He leads the development of the Open Nonlinear Structural Analysis Solver (onsas.org) based in the application of the Finite Element Method.
This minisymposium presents modern approaches to analyze a variety of mathematical systems in Julia, via set propagation techniques: dynamical systems, cyber-physical systems, probabilistic systems, and neural networks. To deploy those systems in the real world there is an increasing demand for safe and reliable models. The speakers represent a broad cross-section of work from different fields that build on set-based techniques and global optimization to address such challenges.
