Sipahi Awarded $200K NSF Grant

September 18, 2009

MIE Assistant Professor Rifat Sipahi has been awarded a $200K NSF grant to reveal the complex interplay between the topology, time delays, and the stability of dynamical systems that couple across networks. The project will have impacts in the fields of networked control systems, human-in-the-loop dynamics and epidemiology.

Professor Sipahi received his BS in Mechanical Engineering in 2000 from Istanbul Technical University. He received his MS studying Mechanical Engineering, specifically Dynamic Systems & Control, at University of Connecticut in 2002. Similarly, his PhD in Mechanical Engineering was received at the University in Connecticut in 2005. His research specializes in control systems and mechatronics,  stability analysis, control synthesis of dynamical systems with delays, interplay between stability, delays, and graphs, control-systems-aided human-machine systems, engineering education research, and disability research.
