  • Joint Seminar Series on Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and METRANS

    Wed, Apr 10, 2019 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Qi Alfred Chen, Computer Science at University California, Irvine

    Talk Title: Ghost Cars and Fake Obstacles: Automated Security Analysis of Emerging Smart Transportation Systems

    Series: Joint Seminar Series on Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and METRANS

    Abstract: Transportation systems today will soon be transformed profoundly due to two recent technology advances: Connected Vehicle (CV) and Autonomous Vehicle (AV). Such transformation leads to the creation of a series of next-generation transportation systems which can substantially improve the quality of our everyday life. However, this also brings new features and operation modes into the transportation ecosystem, e.g., network connectivity and machine learning based sensing, which may introduce new security problem and challenges. In this talk, I will describe my current research that initiates the first effort towards systematically understanding the robustness of the software-based control in CV and AV systems.

    Biography: Qi Alfred Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at UCI. His research interest is network and systems security, and addressing security challenges through systematic problem analysis and mitigation. His work has high impact in both academic and industry with over 10 top-tier conference papers, a DHS US-CERT alert, multiple CVEs, and over 50 news articles by major news media such as Fortune and BBC News.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Apr 10, 2019 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Owen McCarty, Oregon Health & Science University

    Talk Title: The Blood Microenvironment in Thrombosis and Hemostasis: The Good, Bad and the Sticky

    Abstract: Hemostatic plug formation upon blood vessel breach is initiated by platelet recruitment, activation and aggregation in concert with thrombin generation and fibrin formation. However, a similar process can also lead to pathological processes including deep vein thrombosis, ischemic stroke, or myocardial infarction, among others. We have developed narrow mechanism-specific agents targeting the intrinsic pathway of coagulation and demonstrated that experimental thrombosis and platelet production in primates is interrupted by selective inhibition of activation of coagulation factor (F)XI by FXIIa. In this seminar, I will present new data on the role of the endothelium in inactivating FXI, as well as studies on whether inhibiting FXI is beneficial in a non-human primate model of sepsis. I will present our first data from our clinical trial on the safety of inhibition of FXI, and plans to test the efficacy of FXI inhibition in dialysis. The understanding of the mechanisms by which the intrinsic pathway of coagulation promotes thrombus formation may support the rationale for the development of selective, safe and effective antithrombotic strategies targeting FXI.

    Owen McCarty, a native of Rochester, received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from SUNY Buffalo, and a Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, where his research focused on the identification and characterization of tumor cell receptors for blood platelets and leukocytes. He performed his postdoctoral research on platelet cell biology in the Pharmacology Department at the University of Oxford and University of Birmingham, UK in the group of Dr. Steve Watson. Dr. McCarty joined Oregon Health & Science University in 2005, where he holds an appointment as a Professor in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Cell, Developmental & Cancer Biology and the Division of Hematology & Medical Oncology in the OHSU School of Medicine. Dr. McCarty serves as the Chair of the Biomedical Engineering Department and a fellow of the American Heart Association.

  • CAIS Seminar: Dan Berry (University of Minnesota) - It's Complex: Embracing Dynamic Complexity in Children's Self-Regulation Development

    Wed, Apr 10, 2019 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Dan Berry, University of Minnesota

    Talk Title: It's Complex: Embracing Dynamic Complexity in Children's Self-Regulation Development

    Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: Developmental psychologists often invoke the idea that human development reflects "dynamic systems"-”complex, non-linear processes (e.g., physiological, neural, psychological, behavioral) that organize the way we adapt to changing contextual demands. In practice, however, these complexities often serve more as theoretical touchstones than purposeful targets of investigation. In this presentation, Dr. Berry introduces some of the ways that we've begun to leverage the time-series dynamics of visual gaze, behavior, and autonomic physiology as a means of better understanding these complexities in children's self-regulation development.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Daniel Berry is an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota. His research concerns the "real-time" and long-term role of context in children's self-regulation development.
