Dr. Katsaounis is interested in the design of physical experiments (factorial experiments) to study the effect of multiple input variables (factors) on an experimental outcome. Her research deals with the appropriate selection of the combinations of settings of input variables that yields a ‘target’ response. She is working on construction methods and properties of economic factorial experiments for complex physical processes and develops mathematical criteria that can detect whether two seemingly different factorial designs have the same statistical properties (called equivalent designs). She is also interested in designs for computer experiments, and is currently working on evaluating the performance of designs used in coding theory for computer experiments.
