CEE Seminar – Infrastructure as a Driver of Human Behavior and Social Benefits: A New Cyber-Physical-Social System Frontier

Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side A, room 1464

Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) have radically transformed engineering solutions over the last decade and garnered considerable attention, improving infrastructure performance through the combination of sensing, computing, and control. CPSs have even expanded to include human-in-the-loop control, where humans serve as operators or supervisors. While these paradigms have been wildly successful for the design and operation of […]

Towards a Mathematical Theory of Development

French Family Science Center 4233

This talk introduces a mathematical theory of developmental biology, based on optimal transport. While, in principle, organisms are made of molecules whose motions are described by the Schrödinger equation, there are simply too many molecules for this to be useful. Optimal transport-a fascinating topic in its own right, at the intersection of probability, statistics and […]

CEE Seminar – Environmentally Responsible Manufacturing: Origins and Thoughts for the Future

Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium Side A, room 1464

We are increasingly conscious of the environmental challenges we face: solid, liquid, and airborne waste streams; shortages of water, select materials, and energy resources; and climate change. Manufacturing produces and supplies the goods and services needed by society and is an engine of prosperity. However, like many other aspects of engineering, fundamental changes are needed […]

ECE Seminar: Fundamental Limits of Blockchain

Wilkinson Building, room 126

Blockchain technologies have revolutionized our understanding of consensus and decentralized trust. In this talk, I will explain the fundamental challenge of reaching consensus on a distributed ledger in the presence of adversaries and network delays. I will then use a pair of closed-form "finite-blocklength" achievability and converse theorems to answer the following questions about the […]

Single-Cell Genomics to Predict the Cellular Etiology of Autoimmune Risk Loci


To fight and remember infections, B cells in our immune system must undergo maturation in the germinal centre reaction. Errors in this process can lead to either defective immune responses (immunodeficiency) or autoimmune diseases (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis). Many questions remain about the dynamic cellular states involved in both normal and disease-related GC […]
