Tim Rogers

Tim Rogers is a lecturer in the Dynamics Research Group at the University of Sheffield. His research interests are in system identification, Bayesian methods and machine learning with particular application to structural dynamic systems. He is also experienced in structural health monitoring tasks and has focussed on methods for damage detection and classification where extensive baseline data are not available. A key area of his current work is on novel developments and applications of the Gaussian process latent force modelling framework which he has shown to be highly applicable in structural settings for tasks including, joint input-state and input-state-parameter identification of systems with unmeasured loads (including those with nonlinear dynamics) and their use for efficiently determining unknown equations of motion for nonlinear systems through modelling the nonlinear contribution as a latent restoring force.
