Current Research: Interdisciplinary engineering-social sciences / medical research on feedback control for complex dynamical systems, especially in mental health and humanitarian/development engineering:
- Methods: Modeling, computational analysis (simulations/statistical), technology interventions/solutions (mobile devices/apps or web-based, virtual reality), and mathematical approaches (feedback control theory, stability analysis, optimization, and (evolutionary) game theory).
- Application areas:
- e-Mental Health: stress reduction, emotion regulation, attention (ADHD), mood disorders (depression, bipolar illness). EEG and heart rate variability (HRV) signals. Auto-generation of music and video. Apps, web sites, psychoeducation and bio-signal driven virtual reality treatments.
- Humanitarian/development engineering, sociotechnological systems.
