Most projects deal with architectures and algorithms to characterize and improve the performance of these systems. Find out more...
- Paul Hines
Professor Hines studies multi-agent control systems and a variety of topics related to the efficiency, reliability and environmental effects of electrical energy systems. Current projects include the design of decentralized Model Predictive Control methods to mitigate cascading failures in bulk power systems, a project which seeks to quantify the effects of large-scale wind power deployment in the United States and an analysis of electricity network structure from a complex systems perspective. He is also interested in the design of simple, elegant software tools that can facilitate complex power system analysis tasks. Find out more...
- Gagan Mirchandani
Professor Mirchandani works in signal processing, image processing and wavelets. He is concerned with problems in data analysis, such as encoding, denoising, fusion, spectral analysis, and pattern recognition. Current work with sensors includes processing and analyzing signals generated from multielectrode basket catheters, fluorescent microscopes, and cryoelectron microscopes. The first has to do with quantifying atrial fibrillation, the second with determination of colocalization of proteins in confocal microscopy, and the last with automation of single particles for structure determination. Presently, he is also looking into a problem in robot vision control. Find out more...
