Research
My group's research is in the application of feedback and control to mechanical, information, and biological systems. Current projects include integration of control, communications, and computer science in multiagent systems, information dynamics in networked feedback systems, analysis of insect flight control systems, and synthetic biology using geneticallyencoded finite state machines.
