Juliane Mueller joined LBL in 2014 as a Luis Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellow  and in 2017 became a Research Scientist in the Computational Research Divsion.  She develops algorithms for black-box optimization problems whose objective and constraint function evaluations are based on running computationally expensive computer simulations.

Research Interests Related to Simulation Optimization

  • derivative-free global optimization using surrogate models (response surface models)
  • continuous, integer, and mixed-integer optimization
  • multi-objective optimization
  • non-linear, black-box constrained optimization
  • application areas: vehicle routing, transportation network design, structural optimization, renewable energy (hydropower, kite), watershed management, optimal reliability design, global climate models, environmental engineering
