Eman group's work on hemodynamic characterization of small regions in the brain will be presented in the prestigious European Control Conference ECC

Eman's group  develops an algorithm for physiological characterization of small regions of the brain, based on functional Magnetic resonance Imaging experiments. A hierarchical approach, combining an adaptive observer and the modulating functions techniques, is proposed to estimate both the physiological variables such as the cerebral blood flow and the deoxyhemoglobin concentration and the hemodynamic parameters intrinsic to the studied area of the brain.

Chadia Zayane joined the Estimation, Modeling and Analysis research group led by Doctor Meriem Laleg in 2012. She graduated from Supelec engineering school, France, in the field of control and systems in 2005. In 2007, she received her Master of Science in applied mathematics with very high honors from Ecole Normale Superieure in Cachan. She received her PhD from Ecole des Mines in Paris in association with the EDF group (French leading electric utility), in January 2011. Her research is focused on the control of energy and biomedical systems.

ECC: The 13th European Control Conference (ECC 2014) is organized under the auspices of the European Union Control Association (EUCA) and benefits from the scientific sponsorship of the IEEE Control Systems Society. The conference brings together academics and industry professionals in the field of systems and control, and promotes scientific cooperation and exchanges within the European Union and between Europe and other parts of the World. ECC has traditionally been organized every two years ever since its first edition in 1991 up until 2013. As of 2013, the conference is to be held every year, with 2014 marking its first annual edition.
