The full scope of this research is to develop a robust and reliable circadian phase estimation system, and use it for model identification and light-based control design. The objective of this project is to develop preliminary results in the following directions to lay the foundation of the full research. 1. Circadian phase estimation and control Demonstrate the applicability of the adaptive notch filter ANF to extract circadian phase from noisy Drosophila locomotive activity measurements and the efficacy of using the ANF output for light based circadian phase control. 2. Pathway to human deployment Demonstrate the feasibility of a human wearable sensor that could be used with the ANF algorithm to extract the circadian phase of human users.
