Mariella Kast

Master Student



I obtained my Bachelor degree in Engineering Science from the Technical University of Munich, Germany in 2016. For my bachelor project, I worked on inverse problems in elastography, where we tested some stochastic solvers on experimental data.

As part of my Master’s degree in CSE at EPFL, I did an internship at Akselos, where I worked on topics related to model calibration and predictive maintenance of solid structure models for the offshore industry.

I am currently writing my Master thesis under the supervision of Mengwu Guo and Jan Hesthaven with the working title “Multifidelity methods for uncertainty quantification and risk assessment”.

Research interests

Computational mechanics, Reduced Order Modeling, Uncertainty quantification, Risk assessment
