    ChBE Seminar Series: Neda Bagheri

    McCormick-Chemical and Biological Engineering

    9:00 AM L211, Technological Institute

    EVENT DETAILS

    Neda Bagheri of Northwestern University

    Title:
    Modeling the dynamics of life systems: a multidimensional research journey

    Abstract:
    Computational models are essential tools that can be used to simultaneously explain and guide biological intuition. With increasingly high-resolution, high-throughput, and dynamic experimental data, computational biologists are better equipped to develop informed models that aim to characterize complex cellular responses and direct experimental design. My lab operates at this evolving interface between engineering and biology; we employ machine learning, dynamical systems, and agent-based modeling strategies to help explain biological observations, and to elucidate design principles that drive both individual cellular decisions and cell populations.

    Bio:

    In recognition for her research accomplishments and vision, Bagheri was awarded a National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2017. She serves on three scientific advisory boards and two editorial boards, and she has helped direct investments of government agencies through leadership at three grand challenge workshops. Bagheri was honored as a Distinguished Speaker for the Accelerated Discover Forum at IBM Research-Almaden in 2018 and as the Keynote Speaker at the 15th International Conference on Molecular Systems Biology in 2017.

    Bagheri is also invested in mentorship, outreach, and citizenship. After having designed a new science policy course to mobilize McCormick students and reinforce best practices in communicating science with general audiences, she is eager to take on her next project: a series of children’s STEM books.
