    Speaker: Nathan Dahlin, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

    Talk Title: Pricing Randomness, Risk and Flexibility: Market Design For a Smarter Grid

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: The current moment finds the world's energy infrastructure at the threshold of rapid transformation. Today's power systems are defined by increasing penetration of renewable and distributed energy resources on the supply side, and the emergence of flexible loads on the demand side. Clearly, market institutions have a crucial role to play in this transformation as well. Through market analysis, design and optimization, this talk will explore how such institutions can evolve to address four key characteristics of modern power systems: uncertainty, risk, flexibility and strategic behavior.

    First, given that user flexibility is considered one of the most valuable, yet still untapped resources available for accommodating the transition to renewables, an explicit market for flexibility is designed and analyzed. Users report preferences for service over a finite time horizon to a scheduler which shapes the aggregate demand profile to the output of a renewable generator, while minimizing the costs associated with resorting to thermal generation. Social welfare properties of competitive equilibria and an accompanying mechanism are studied. As the competitive equilibria arise from a convex relaxation of the binary constrained load scheduling problem, an interpretation of equilibrium schedules as giving a stochastic method for generating an optimal schedule in the large economy limit is also examined. Next, focusing on the transmission component of the power grid, rather than arrange advance supply and account for real time imbalances in supply and demand separately, a two-stage, stochastic market clearing paradigm is considered. Probabilistic information regarding renewable generation is used to couple day ahead and expected real time recourse decisions, increasing efficiency. A two-stage mechanism is developed for a two-sided exchange with primary and ancillary generation and demand response, implementing a sequential competitive equilibrium (SCEq). Allowing for strategic behavior, sufficient conditions are provided for the existence of efficient sequential Nash equilibria.


    Biography: Nathan Dahlin received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering in 2008 and 2020, respectively, and the M.A. degree in applied mathematics in 2020 from the University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA, USA. In 2021 he completed the Ph.D degree in electrical engineering at USC, under advisement of Prof. Rahul Jain. From 2008 to 2015 he worked as a research and development engineer at Audyssey Laboratories in Los Angeles. He is currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, under advisement of Prof. Subhonmesh Bose.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Sep 01, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Sutanu Sarkar, University of California at San Diego

    Talk Title: Wakes in the Natural Environment

    Abstract: Environmental wakes are produced by flows past structures which are engineered (e.g., oceanic submersibles, aerial vehicles, wind turbines, urban structures) or in nature (hills, mountain ranges, islands, seamounts). These wakes impact drag on the incident flow as well as transport of material, pollutants and environmental constituents. We will illustrate wake flow physics with a few examples studied using high-resolution simulation. The wake of a blunt object such as a disk will be contrasted with a streamlined object such as a prolate spheroid with respect to mean velocity, turbulence levels, flow instabilities and coherent structures. We will discuss both a constant density fluid and a density-stratified fluid where buoyancy inevitably alters the wake of the body. We will also present an example from nature, an oceanic current past a submerged hill, where we find synchronization of wake vortices with subharmonics of the oscillating tide and also states of high drag.



    Biography: Sutanu Sarkar received his B. Tech. from IIT Bombay, M. S. from Ohio State University and Ph. D. from Cornell University. After 4 years as a staff scientist at ICASE, NASA Langley Research Center, he joined UCSD where he currently holds the Blasker Chair of Environmental Engineering, is a Distinguished Professor in the department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), and is an affiliate professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He was Chair of MAE from 2009-2014. He has broad interests in the simulation and modeling of turbulent flows. He has worked in problems concerning the environment, energy, aerospace and propulsion. His current research interests are turbulence and mixing in the ocean and atmosphere, wakes and boundary layers of engineered structures in the natural environment, and renewable energy. He has received a NASA group achievement award (1994), the Bessel Award from the Humboldt Foundation (2001), and was elected Fellow, American Physical Society (2006), Associate Fellow, AIAA (2009) and Fellow, ASME (2010). He is an associate editor of JFM.

    Title: Enabling Efficient Execution of In Situ Workflows

    Abstract:

    Advances in high-performance computing (HPC) allow scientific simulations to run at an ever-increasing scale, generating a large amount of data that needs to be analyzed over time. Conventionally, the simulation outputs the entire simulated data set to the file system for later post-processing.
    Unfortunately, the slow growth of I/O technologies compared to the computing capability of present-day processors causes an I/O bottleneck of post-processing as saving data to storage is not as fast as data is generated. According to data-centric models, a new processing paradigm has recently emerged, called in situ, where simulation data is analyzed on-the-fly to reduce the expensive I/O cost of saving massive data for post-processing. Since an in situ workflow usually consists of
    co-located tasks running concurrently on the same resources in an iterative manner, the execution yields complicated behaviors that create challenges in evaluating the efficiency of an in situ run. To enable efficient execution of in situ workflows, this proposal proposes a theoretical framework that models the efficiency of in situ execution for evaluating the performance of in situ workflows. By extending the proposed performance model to resource-aware performance indicators, we introduce a method to assess resource usage, resource allocation, and resource provisioning for in situ workflow ensembles. In support of the thesis, this work serves as a prerequisite of evaluating in situ scheduling decisions.

    Title: Mining and leveraging temporal structures of human behavior in Online Platforms

    Abstract:

    With the development of technology in recent years, detailed data on human temporal behavior has become available. Many methods have been proposed for mining these human dynamic behavioral data, which have provided valuable insights for research, especially in computational social science. However, most methods analyze only sequential behavior and do not comprehensively consider inter-temporal information such as time intervals between users' actions. In this proposal, we leverage the time intervals of actions to understand human behavior from a mid-term perspective. We first argue that the engagement analysis without considering time interval differences among individuals may return a biased result and propose a method to mitigate those biases. Then we also propose an embedding-based approach to incorporate inter-temporal information into human behavior analysis, which enables us to mine the temporal context of action in a unified manner. Our proposal will demonstrate the importance of inter-temporal information, especially in the application of computational social science.

  • Epstein Seminar: Yayue Pan (University of Illinois at Chicago) - Multi-functional Additive Manufacturing of Smart Materials and Devices

    Tue, Sep 07, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Yayue Pan, University of Illinois at Chicago

    Talk Title: Multi-functional Additive Manufacturing of Smart Materials and Devices

    Series: Epstein Institute Seminar

    Abstract: By combining various materials that serve mechanical, electrical, chemical, thermal, and/or optical functions into a component with locally controlled distributions, we can produce composites and multi-material objects with a higher degree of functionality than would normally be found in a pure material part. In addition to material combination, by integrating hierarchial surface structures with dimensions spanning from nanoscale to macroscale, superior functions can be engineered and integrated into the component. However, to manufacture such multi-material multi-scale components directly out of a digital model without assembly, grand challenges still exist in material distribution and localized material phase control. In this talk, I will present our recent research in addressing these manufacturing challenges by integrating external fields in varied additive manufacturing processes. First, I will introduce external field assisted projection stereolithography technologies for productions of functional particle-polymer objects with hierarchical surface structures. After that, I will present a electrowetting-assisted direct ink writing technology for productions of conductive patterns on rough substrates at meters per second speeds for energy related applications. More energy related applications will be presented with a self-binding selective laser sintering method. In these additive manufacturing processes, I will discuss the effectiveness of integrations of external fields on controlling local material distributions and combining multiple materials. Applications of the 3D printed multi-functional materials and components in soft robotics, electronics packaging, and energy storage will be demonstrated.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Dr. Yayue Pan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Her research focuses on multi-material and multi-functional Additive Manufacturing processes for applications in anisotropic composites, sensing and actuating devices, energy management and storage. Dr. Pan holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Southern California. Some of her recent awards include Outstanding Paper Award in 41st SME NAMRC conference, 2017 SME Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award, 2017 UIC College of Engineering Faculty Research Award, 2020 ASME CIE TC Leadership Award, and several awards from National Science Foundation of United States.

    Speaker: Tirtha Banerjee, UC Irvine

    Talk Title: TBD

    Abstract: The traditional motivation behind studying the dynamics of turbulent wind flow in vegetation canopies has been to understand the nature of mass, momentum and energy exchange between the land surface and the atmosphere. The nature of this interaction determines the microclimate in a forest environment where plants exchange carbon and water and its understanding is relevant for a plethora of applications ranging from ecology, hydrology, agriculture and the modeling of weather and climate. However, the fundamental nature of turbulence in a vegetation canopy is significantly different from the atmospheric surface layer lying above, which means that scaling laws and exchange coefficients from traditional wall bounded flows are not applicable. In a forest canopy, momentum absorption happens not only at the ground surface but throughout the depth of the canopy, resulting in a unique roughness sub layer. Instead of a log-layer, the mean velocity profile is inflected, second order moments are variable with height and skewnesses are large. Large scale coherent structures impart significant impact on the turbulence dynamics. Sweeping motions arising out of downdraft motions of counter-rotating vortices dominate eddy fluxes. A mixing layer model is found to be a better model for describing canopy flows. High frequency measurements and computational fluid dynamics modeling, especially Large Eddy Simulations (LES) has been instrumental in revealing the nature of canopy turbulence in the last few decades. Now this knowledge is being used to push the frontiers of our limited understanding of how wildland fires behave. The main controls on wildland fire behavior -“ fuel (canopy and grasslands), weather and topography are strongly influenced by fine scale physics of canopy turbulence. We will demonstrate that further developments in the understanding of canopy turbulence can benefit wildfire modeling tools and developing actionable management strategies.

    Biography: Tirtha Banerjee is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California, Irvine. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Jadavpur University, Calcutta, India in 2011. During his undergraduate studies, he conducted research in the areas of structural dynamics and Aerospace Engineering in India and Germany as a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Fellow. Upon completion of his undergraduate studies in 2011, he moved to the U.S. and joined Duke University in Durham, NC, as a Ph.D. student and conducted theoretical, numerical and experimental studies involving environmental fluid dynamics and turbulent flows. He received his Ph.D. in 2015 and joined the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany for postdoctoral research in atmospheric boundary layer dynamics. He relocated to the U.S. in early 2017 to join the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico and started working on wildfires, ecosystem disturbance as well as wind energy resources. At LANL he received a Chick Keller Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2017 and a Directors Fellowship in 2018. He joined UC Irvine in fall 2019. Research in the Boundary Layers and Turbulence Lab led by Banerjee studies mass, momentum and energy exchange between the land surface and the atmosphere using a range of theoretical, numerical and experimental techniques. He currently serves as an associate editor of the journal Earth Systems and Environment (Springer) and as an editorial board member of the journal Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (Elsevier).

    Fri, Sep 10, 2021 @ 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM

    Computer Science

    University Calendar


    Name: Rujun Han


    Time: 2-3:30pm, Sep 10th


    Committee Members: Nanyun Peng (Chair), Aram Galstyan, Shrikanth Narayanan, Aiichiro Nakano, Xiang Ren


    Title: Event-centric Reasoning in NLP with IE, QA, and NLG Applications

    Abstract: Stories or narratives are composed based on events. Knowing how these events are connected logically and semantically is crucial for understanding human written texts. In the proposed thesis, we explore and invent algorithms, as well as construct novel datasets to facilitate future investigation and evaluation of automated event-centric reasoning. Specifically, we design structural deep neural networks, adapt continual pretraining methods, and leverage graph attention models to enhance machines' reasoning skills in text data. We then apply these techniques to solve event-centric tasks in information extraction, reading comprehension, question-answering, and natural language generation.

  • Traits for Success in Professional Services Careers hosted by Grant Thornton and VCC

    Tue, Sep 14, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions


    This Event is Virtual, hosted by Grant Thornton and Viterbi Career Connections!

    Join this event to learn more about some of the traits that make a successful employee in a professional services career! Our professionals will share examples from their client interactions and provide insights that they've learned during their careers. There will be time at the end of the session for networking with Grant Thornton professionals, where you're encouraged to ask questions to learn about the work that their teams do.

    Is this event specific to USC Viterbi School of engineering, or multi-university event?

    Students majoring in any area of engineering who are interested in careers in professional services are welcome to attend, but the Viterbi Information Technology Program is best aligned with the skillset that our advisory professionals look for.

    What majors and class levels are you interested in connecting with?

    We're looking for students entering their second to last year of school for internship opportunities, and students entering their last year of school for full-time opportunities. Students who are earlier on in their academic career are also encouraged to attend if they're interested in careers in professional services and would like to network with our professionals and learn more about the work they do.

    Are you recruiting for internships, full time, or both?

    We are recruiting for internships and full-time opportunities, but the bulk of our recruiting efforts will be focused on internships (for students graduating any time between December 2022 and summer of 2023)

    Can you offer Visa sponsorship? Unfortunately, Grant Thornton is not able to offer Visa sponsorship to candidates.
    Are you able to hire a student on CPT or OPT? Sadly not; Grant Thornton requires that candidates do not require sponsorship now or at any point in the future.


    Maggie Cutler Young (she/her/hers) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

    Tue, Sep 14, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Stephen J. Wright, University of Wisconsin-Madison

    Talk Title: The Role of Complexity Bounds in Optimization

    Abstract: Complexity analysis in optimization seeks upper bounds on the amount of work required to find approximate solutions of problems in a given class with a given algorithm, and also lower bounds, usually in the form of a worst-case example from a given problem class as regards the work required by a particular class of algorithms. The relationship between theoretical complexity bounds and practical performance of algorithms on "typical" problems varies widely across problem and algorithm classes, and relative interest among researchers between these two aspects of algorithm design and analysis has waxed and waned over the years. This talk surveys complexity analysis and its relationship to practice in optimization, with an emphasis on linear programming and convex and nonconvex nonlinear optimization, providing historical (and cultural) perspectives on research in these areas.

    Speaker: Tim Colonius, Caltech

    Talk Title: Simulation of bubbly, cavitating flows with application to shock- and ultrasound-based medical therapies.

    Abstract: Models and numerical methods for simulating bubbly, cavitating flows have benefitted from recent advances in sharp and diffuse interface-capturing schemes, but many challenges remain to be solved before they can be routinely used to predict the complex, multiscale flows associated with important applications in engineering and medicine. In particular, the complex phase boundary, small length scales, and fast time scales associated with the dynamics of bubbles and clouds of bubbles strain existing algorithms and computational resources. In this talk, I will review different formulations for multiphase/multicomponent flows that involve large changes in volume, including methods that explicitly resolve the material interface, and ones that model the mixture as either homogeneous, or as a dilute dispersion of spherical bubbles. These methods are demonstrated in applications involving the high-intensity ultrasound and shock waves used for medical imaging and intra- and extra-corporeal manipulation of cells, tissue, and urinary calculi. Such waves are currently used to treat kidney stone disease, plantar fasciitis, and bone nonunion, and they are being investigated as a technique to ablate cancer tumors and mediate drug delivery. In many applications, acoustic waves induce the expansion and collapse of preexisting or newly cavitating bubbles. The resulting bubble dynamics generate large, localized stresses and strains that can be beneficial or deleterious depending on how effectively they can be controlled. I will describe efforts aimed at simulating the collapse of bubbles, both individually and in clusters, in order to characterize these mechanical stresses and strains.

    Biography: Tim Colonius is the Frank and Ora Lee Marble Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. He received his B.S. from the University of Michigan in 1987 and M.S and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1988 and 1994, respectively. He and his research team use numerical simulations to study a range of problems in fluid dynamics, including aeroacoustics, flow control, instabilities, shock waves, and bubble dynamics. Prof. Colonius also investigates medical applications of ultrasound, and is a member of the Medical Engineering faculty at Caltech. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Acoustical Society of America, and he is Editor-in-Chief of the journal Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics. He was the recipient of the 2018 AIAA Aeroacoustics Award.

    Talk Title: The Fate and Transformation of Nitromethanes during Wastewater Reuse Processes

    Abstract: As water resources become increasingly scarce, potable reuse of wastewater is considered to be a potential solution. There are increasingly number of treatment processes currently in used in full- and pilot- scale water reclamation plants involves ozonation. Ozone is considered to be a highly effective oxidant and disinfectant. However, previous research has demonstrated that ozonation of wastewater overall drastically increases chloropicrin formation potential during subsequent chlorination. Nitromethane has been be proven to be the immediate precursor of chloropicrin prior to chlorination, however nitromethane itself is unlikely to be present in wastewater naturally. Previous research indicates that ozone directly oxidizing secondary amines bearing an N-methylamine functional group lead to nitromethane formation.

    Ozonation is widely used in wastewater reclamation treatment trains, either for micropollutant control or as a disinfectant and pre-oxidant in certain reuse processes. Nitromethane formation will be strongly promoted post ozonation but its fate through other treatment process remains uncharacterized, which raise the question of can nitromethane be detected in final product water. The objects of this study are to demonstrate that nitromethane formation post ozonation in real full- and pilot scale reuse plants and to characterize the nitromethane fate throughout the entire treatment trains.
    In this work, the fate of nitromethane through water reuse treatment trains was characterized by analyzing samples from five reuse operations employing ozone. Nitromethane was poorly (90%) nitromethane. Bench-scale experiments were conducted to verify low removal by RO in clean systems and with wastewater effluent, and to quantify the kinetics of direct and indirect photolysis of nitromethane in UV/AOP.

    These results indicate that nitromethane presents a unique hazard to direct potable reuse systems, due to its ubiquitous formation during wastewater ozonation, poor removal by RO and UV/AOP, and facile conversion into genotoxic halonitromethanes upon chlorine addition.

    Title:
    Reasoning about sets of dynamical systems:
    Identification, adaptive control, and suboptimal coverings

    Abstract:

    Robots often have physical dynamics that are unknown, but belong to a highly structured set. Knowledge of the set structure is useful for designing adaptive mechanisms, especially if synthesizing a good control policy for each system in the set is straightforward. However, when the systems in the set are complex enough to necessitate black-box methods like reinforcement learning, it is less clear how to use knowledge of the set structure. For example, neural network policies that take dynamics parameters as a secondary input fall short of the performance of single-system policies.

    We propose both practical and theoretical inquiries into this difficulty. From the practical side, we propose an alternative to black-box learning methods that combines differentiable simulation, recurrent neural network models, and established methods from nonlinear control. From the theoretical side, we introduce the framework of suboptimal covering numbers to quantify "how much" a good policy must change with respect to dynamics parameters. We bound the suboptimal covering number for a simple class of linear-quadratic systems.

    Tue, Sep 28, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. David Simchi-Levi, MIT

    Talk Title: Statistical Learning in Operations Management

    Abstract: Traditionally, statistical learning is focused on either (i) online learning where data is generated online according to some unknown model; or (ii) offline learning where the entire data is available at the beginning of the process. In this talk we show that combining both approaches can accelerate learning. Specifically, we show that difficult online learning problems can be reduced to well-understood offline regression problems. We demonstrate the impact of our work in the context of product recommendation, multiclass classification problems, personalized medicine and dynamic pricing.

    Speaker: Vijay Gupta, Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame

    Talk Title: Distributed Synthesis for Local Controllers in Networked Systems

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: In traditional decentralized and distributed control, the subsystem level controllers are constrained to use states from a subset of neighboring subsystems to determine their control actions; however, the process of designing the controllers is centralized and utilizes the knowledge of the dynamics of all subsystems. For large scale systems involving plug and play operations, a distributed synthesis process in which the control synthesis is carried out locally at the subsystem level, without explicit knowledge of the dynamics of other subsystems in the network, may be required. We provide such a control design. We begin with a model based design and then extend it to consider the case when accurate models may not be available and a data-driven design is preferable.

    Biography: Vijay Gupta is a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, having joined the faculty in January 2008. He received his B. Tech degree at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, and his M.S. and Ph.D. at California Institute of Technology, all in Electrical Engineering. Prior to joining Notre Dame, he also served as a research associate in the Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received the 2018 Antonio Ruberti Award from IEEE Control Systems Society, the 2013 Donald P. Eckman Award from the American Automatic Control Council and a 2009 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award. His research and teaching interests are broadly in distributed decision making.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Malancha Gupta, USC

    Talk Title: Initiated Chemical Vapor Deposition of Polymer Coatings and Membranes

    Abstract: Initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) is a solventless process that can be used to synthesize polymer films and coatings with a range of functionalities including hydrophilicity, hydrophobicity, light-responsiveness, and thermo-responsiveness. This talk will present the mechanism, capabilities, and advantages of the iCVD process. We will demonstrate that the iCVD process can be used to modify the surface properties of fibers, membranes, and microfluidic channels for applications in textiles, separations, and diagnostics. We will also demonstrate that polymers can be deposited onto low vapor pressure liquids including ionic liquids and silicone oils to fabricate ultrathin freestanding polymer films, nanoparticles, core-shell particles, and gels. We will also show that lowering the temperature of the substrate below the freezing point of the monomer leads to the formation of polymer membranes. These membranes can be deposited onto porous substrates to create hierarchical porous-on-porous structures that can enable improved filtration for water purification and sensor applications.

    Biography: Malancha Gupta is the Gabilan Distinguished Professor at the Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Southern California. She received her B.S. in chemical engineering from The Cooper Union in New York City in 2002. She received her Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2007 under the guidance of Professor Karen Gleason. From 2007-2009, she was a postdoctoral fellow in the department of chemistry and chemical biology at Harvard University working under the guidance of Professor George Whitesides. Her current research interests include polymer coatings and thin films, chemical vapor deposition, ionic liquids, and microfluidics. She has mentored 16 doctoral students and published 68 peer-reviewed manuscripts. She received the Jack Munushian Early Career Chair in 2013, the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2013, and the USC Viterbi School of Engineering Junior Faculty Award in 2014. She was director of the chemical engineering program from 2018-2020 and she has served as chair of the Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) engineering committee at USC since 2015.
