Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; Director, Institute for Data, Systems, and Society
Munther Dahleh is the William A. Coolidge Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He is also director of the MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society. Dahleh is interested in networked systems with applications to social and economic networks, financial networks, transportation networks, neural networks, and the power grid. Specifically, he focuses on the development of foundational theory necessary to understand, monitor, and control systemic risk in interconnected systems. He is also interested in learning high-dimensional, unstructured stochastic systems from finite data. His recent work focuses on understanding the economics of data as well as deriving a foundational theory for data markets. His work draws from various fields including optimal and robust control, distributed online optimization, information theory, distributed learning, and algorithmic game theory. His collaborations include faculty from all five schools at MIT. Dahleh earned a PhD in electrical and computer engineering from Rice University.
