Current Research: Interdisciplinary engineering-social sciences research on feedback control for complex dynamical systems:

  • Dynamical system types: Individual cognition dynamics and decision making, and group dynamics/decision making that incorporate social networks.
  • Methods: Modeling, computational analysis (simulations/statistical), technology interventions/solutions (mobile devices/apps or web-based), and mathematical approaches (feedback control theory, stability analysis, optimization, and game theory).
  • Application areas: Humanitarian engineering, sociotechnological systems, social work, psychology, and economics/finance.
