Frank Doyle assumed the deanship of the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences on July 1, 2015. A distinguished scholar in chemical engineering, he previously served as associate dean for research at the University of California, Santa Barbara’s College of Engineering, where he has served as chair of the department of chemical engineering.

As a scholar, Doyle applies systems engineering principles to the analysis of regulatory mechanisms in biological systems. His work includes the design of drug-delivery devices for diabetes; modeling, analysis, and control of gene regulatory networks underlying circadian rhythms; and computational analysis for developing diagnostics for post-traumatic stress disorder. Doyle also applies control schemes to nonlinear, multivariable, constrained industrial processes such as particulate systems and pulp and paper operations, and works on control aspects of sheet/film processes.
