Francis "Frank" J. Doyle III is the dean of the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and John A. & Elizabeth S. Armstrong Professor of Engineering & Applied Sciences[1]. He is an affiliated faculty member in the Division of Sleep Medicine in the Harvard Medical School[2], and is a faculty member in the Systems Biology PhD Program[3].

Biography

Doyle completed his undergraduate studies at Princeton University in 1985, receiving a B.S.E. in chemical engineering. He received a M.S. (C.P.G.S.) in chemical engineering from Cambridge University in 1986, and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 1991.

Doyle joined Harvard in 2015[4], becoming the first John A. Paulson Dean[5]. 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 also served as chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering. At UCSB he was a founding co-Director of the UCSB-MIT-Caltech Institute of Collaborative Biotechnologies.

Prior to his appointment at UCSB, Doyle was a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware (1997-2002)[6], and was a professor in the School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University (1992-1997)[7]. Between his graduate studies and his first academic appointment, he did postdoctoral studies at the DuPont Company.

Research

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 (i.e., the artificial pancreas)[8]; 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.

Honors and recognition

Doyle has received a number of honors throughout his career, including:

He has also held leadership positions in professional societies including the IEEE (as President of the Control Systems Society) and as Vice President of the International Federation for Automatic Control (IFAC), among others.

Personal

Frank is married to Diana Rodriguez, and they have 3 children[21]. In his free time, Frank enjoys racing sailboats, and has competed in a number of regattas during and since college, including the 2011 Transpac Race. His other hobby is refereeing soccer, and he is currently certified in several leagues including AYSO (National Referee), USSF (Grade 7 Referee), and NISOA.
