Jacob Jones and his colleagues from North Carolina State University, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have developed a novel approach to materials characterization, using Bayesian statistical methods to glean new insights into the structure of materials. The work should inform the development of new materials for use in a variety of applications. Dr. Jones is affiliated with the Center for Dielectrics and Piezoelectrics.
In a related project, one of Dr. Jones students majoring in statistics created an introductory tutorial on Bayesian statistics for the non-expert (i.e., materials researchers). It can be found here: YouTube
