Kaiyala, Ph.D., Research Associate Professor in Oral Health
Sciences, investigates physiological regulation, primarily using
a rodent total calorimetry and temperature model. An area of particular
interest concerns the systems-level biobehavioral adaptations elicited
during acute and chronic drug administration. Dr. Kaiyala’s work
combines rigorous empirical methodologies with highly quantitative
mathematical tools including control theory and biostatistics.
