Speaker Bio:

Niall Mangan is an Assistant Professor (starting Jan 2018) in the Department of Engineering Sciences & Applied Mathematics at the McCormick School of Engineering, Northwestern University. Her primary research goal is to connect the speed and automation of top-down data-driven model selection methods with the explanatory power of bottom-up mechanistic modeling. Mechanistic modeling provides a powerful framework for systems design and optimization, but relies on close integration of model development and experimental validation. Data science methods promise rapid, automated, descriptions and predictions for complex systems, generally without knowledge of underlying mechanism. By combining the two, she can more rapidly develop explanatory mechanistic models that can be used to optimize system performance and design engineering solutions.

About the Speaker Series:

Wednesdays@NICO is a vibrant weekly seminar series focusing broadly on the topics of complex systems and data science. It brings together attendees ranging from graduate students to senior faculty who span all of the schools across Northwestern, from applied math to sociology to biology and every discipline in-between.
