Research Area: Health Policy
Research Abstract: Opioid dependence has become a national public health crisis. Veterans are particularly affected. The Veterans Affairs Health System (VA) must prioritize interventions under increasing budgetary constraints. Michael Fairley is developing a mathematical decision model to help the VA determine a portfolio of interventions to invest in that will maximize health and economic benefits. The proposed work requires knowledge not only from engineering, but also knowledge of medical, behavioral, and economic factors relevant to opioid dependence. Michael will create new methodology for quantitatively modeling economic and behavioral implications of policy decisions and will generate an evidence-based policy recommendation for VA.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe are interested in designing and engineering new nanoplasmonic platforms, including those fabricated by top-down and bottom-up processes, for the purposes of developing new sensors, beam steering platforms, active on-chip optical components, and modulators. We are also interested in exploring new material platforms, utilizing stretchable and thin-film materials, that integrate optical and electronic functionality for the purposes of realizing new body-worn and bio-medical devices.

BioI work on understanding the statistical physics and optimization principles of organized biological systems.
I am interested in a lot of things: statistical physics, dynamic systems, optimization theory, game theory, biophysics, evolution, development, and ecology. I also spend time on the engineering and technology required for depicting concrete biological systems.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsCharbel Farhat and his Research Group (FRG) develop mathematical models, advanced computational algorithms, and high-performance software for the design and analysis of complex systems in aerospace, marine, mechanical, and naval engineering. They contribute major advances to Simulation-Based Engineering Science. Current engineering foci in research are on the nonlinear aeroelasticity and flight dynamics of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) with flexible flapping wings and N+3 aircraft with High Aspect Ratio (HAR) wings, layout optimization and additive manufacturing of wing structures, supersonic inflatable aerodynamic decelerators for Mars landing, and the reliable automated carrier landing via model predictive control. Current theoretical and computational emphases in research are on high-performance, multi-scale modeling for the high-fidelity analysis of multi-physics problems, high-order embedded boundary methods, uncertainty quantification, probabilistic machine learning, and efficient model-order reduction for time-critical applications such as design and active control.
