DongWonOh

DongWon Oh, a PhD candidate in the Psychology Department and part of the Social Perception Lab, will join PA3 on Friday January 12th.  We know that impressions from faces are consequential, shaping important social outcomes.  DongWon's recent empirical studies and computational models show that women are at a disadvantage because of gender biases in impressions. 

Please join us.  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!

Speaker:  Daniel J. Cohen, ’08

 

Assistant Professor, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

Princeton University

 

“Crowd Control:  Swarm Engineering for Medicine & Biotechnology”

 

Daniel is returning to Princeton University as a new professor in the MAE Department, having earned his BSE in Mechanical Engineering – and completed joint Bioengineering doctoral work at UC Berkeley and UCSF, and post-doctoral training in Biology at Stanford. After research spanning bio-inspired robotics, dinosaur mechanics, genetic engineering, surgical implant design and nanotechnology, his focus has now turned to tissue engineering and biomaterials design: applying concepts from swarm theory (bird flocking and sheep herding) to develop new biomedical tools and techniques.  After introducing swarm theory and its application to cellular systems, his talk will feature case studies from bioelectricity, biomaterials and machine learning that demonstrate how applying “swarm engineering” may transform how we:  interact with living cells, heal ourselves and understand diseases.
