Satish Udpa's research interests span the broad area of materials characterization and nondestructive evaluation (NDE). Work done by him to date in the area includes an extensive repertoire of forward models for simulating physical processes underlying several inspection techniques. Coupled with careful experimental work, such forward models can be used for designing new sensors, optimizing test conditions, estimating the probability of detection, assessing designs for inspectability and training inverse models for characterizing defects.
