Research Interests

Dr. Hahn's research focuses on the development of new systems analysis techniques and their application in systems biology as well as for traditional chemical engineering processes. Special emphasis is placed on methods for nonlinear systems that can take into account significant levels of uncertainty in the model. Applications of these techniques include sensitivity analysis of signal transduction pathways, image analysis techniques for fluorescence microscopy images, model reduction for controller design, and experimental and sensor network design.
