Unique macroscopic phenomena, such as high-temperature superconductivity and colossal magnetoresistance, emerge in many complex solids due to the interplay between their electronic, magnetic, and structural degrees of freedom. This interplay also results in properties that can be tuned by manipulating their atomic structure and symmetry. In this talk, Dr. Disa will discuss two complementary “non-equilibrium” […]

Abstract: I'll discuss the use of observational data to estimate the causal effect of a treatment on an outcome. This task is complicated by the presence of 'confounders' that influence both treatment and outcome, inducing observed associations that are not causal. Causal estimation is achieved by adjusting for this confounding by using observed covariate information. I'll […]

Two-component systems (TCSs) are the largest family of signal transduction pathways in biology, and a treasure trove of biosensors for engineering applications. Though present in plants and other eukaryotes, TCSs are ubiquitous in bacteria. Bacteria use TCSs to sense everything from metal ions to carbohydrates and light, and activate responses such as biofilm formation, antibiotic-resistance, […]

Abstract When individuals post to social media or use wearable devices, data generated through these everyday interactions with technology reveal a great deal about behaviors that influence health in ways that were previously not observable. In my work, I seek to leverage this data to characterize and measure the naturalistic manifestations a.k.a digital phenotyping of […]
