Professor Pavel holds a joint faculty appointment in the College of Computer & Information Science and Bouvé College of Health Sciences. He has an educational background in both electrical engineering and experimental psychology, and his research is focused on multiscale computational modeling of complex behaviors of biological systems, which are applied in engineering, augmentation of human performance, and healthcare. Using such model-based approaches, Professor Pavel is using these model-based approaches to develop algorithms converting unobtrusive monitoring data to useful and actionable knowledge for diagnosis and intervention. These efforts, undertaken within the Northeastern-based Consortium on Technology for Proactive Care, are targeting technological innovations to support the evolution of economically feasible, proactive, distributed, and individual-centered healthcare. Professor Pavel previously was the director of the Smart and Connected Health Program at the National Science Foundation, a program co-sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. Earlier, he served as the chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Oregon Health & Science University, a technology leader at AT&T Laboratories, a member of the technical staff at Bell Laboratories, and faculty member at Stanford University and New York University.
