ESE Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Statistical Learning for System Identification, Prediction, and Control”

January 20 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Meeting ID 949 5950 4530

Despite the recent widespread success of machine learning, we still do not fully understand its fundamental limitations. Going forward, it is crucial to better understand learning complexity, especially in critical decision making applications, where a wrong decision can lead to catastrophic consequences. In this thesis, we focus on the statistical complexity of learning unknown linear […]

MSE Seminar: “How do tissues fracture and repair across length scales?”

January 20 at 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Zoom

In structural materials engineering, we often aim to create materials that are simultaneously strong, tough and lightweight- a combination classically considered mutually exclusive. Biogenic composite materials such as bone exhibit a combination of these properties exceeding that of their constituents, a feat generally credited to their hierarchal structure, down to the nanoscale. In this talk, […]

This seminar will be held in person and on zoom (the link will be sent out via email). Mucus is a biological gel within the lung designed to behave like an “escalator” with the ability to capture potentially harmful inhaled materials (e.g. pathogens, particulates) and carry these materials via mucociliary clearance up to the throat […]
