Can we diagnose Multiple Sclerosis from gait patterns?

Can the Smart home also be frugal?

Roads and traffic make complex networks. Can we find robust patterns of congestion in a city?

How much time would you have to give up to avoid accidents? We combined some datasets from New York City to understand this tradeoff

While many crops already are or are becoming mechanized, many valuable crops still are hand-picked. These crops sometimes need new ways to collect precise geospatial harvest data which can then be used to monitor, measure, and optimize what is happening in the field.

A number of hIgh-value hand-picked specialty crops are very susceptible to spoilage after they have been picked and while they are waiting to be refrigerated. We would like to model and minimize this spoilage.

Uncertainty is a crucial factor in financial stability, but it is notoriously difficult to measure. This working paper extends techniques from engineering to quantify fundamental economic uncertainty, and applies the method to an example of portfolio stress testing. By this measure, uncertainty peaked in late 2008. Preprint.

Bankrupt stocks are still traded while the court winds the company down. This creates some interesting dynamics as traders short a finite number of shares of the stock. Preprint.

The dynamics of many multiphase systems are described by moving boundary problems. What happens if we add noise to these PDE’s? Preprint.
