Sipahi Awarded DARPA Grant
MIE Assistant Professor Rifat Sipahi received a $300K DARPA grant for his research “Model-Free Algorithms to Assist and Control Human-Task Missions against Dynamic Environments.”
Professor Sipahi received his Mechanical Engineering PhD in 2005 from University of Connecticut. His research interests include stability, stabilization, and control design for systems with multiple delays, encompassing theoretical developments and experimental verifications; multi-disciplinary engineering and medical approach to revealing engineering principles by which non-invasive affordances can be devised to assist people with hand tremors in their daily lives, e.g., for writing and drinking tasks; and control theory application to human machine systems in which biosensors are utilized for affective computing, and to infer mental workload of humans, by which appropriate machine adaptation can be made in real time to enhance the efficacy of human machine interactions.
