Speaker: Doctor Christopher V. Hollot 

Host Faculty: Professor Shiv Panwar

Abstract

Over the past decade, my research in the theory and application of feedback control has been aimed at biology engineering. Two projects I have been working on are in circadian rhythms and anemia management control. The technical part of this talk will primarily focus on the former topic, which will be interspersed with experiences in interdisciplinary research with biologists and medical clinicians.
