Expertise: Artificial pancreas, Fault detection and diagnosis, Adaptive control, Agent-based modeling of biosystems
Ali Cinar received the Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA. He is Professor of Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL, USA, and since 2004, he has been the Director of the Engineering Center for Diabetes Research and Education. He has a Research Associate (Professor) appointment at the University of Chicago (Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism). His current research interests include multivariable fault detection and diagnosis, and adaptive control techniques for artificial pancreas systems for patients with diabetes, agent-based techniques for modeling, supervision, and control of complex and distributed systems, and modeling of diabetes, angiogenesis and tissue formation. He has published two books, and over 200 technical papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Cinar is a senior member of the IEEE, a fellow of the AIChE, and a member of BMES, ADA and TERMIS.
