Matthew Bonney (Swansea) was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Sheffield developing digital operational platforms for digital twins. He is now a lecture at the University of Swansea.  His research focuses on software tool development and modeling uncertainty for structural dynamics. This study of uncertainty focuses is utilizing Hyper-Dual numbers for the calculation of numerical derivatives used for aleatoric uncertainty and various modeling of epistemic uncertainty. Additionally, he has an interest in contact/joint mechanics for high consequence systems. He received his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering (2013) and Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics (2017) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After graduation, Matthew was a postdoctoral fellow for the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission and a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Nottingham.
