Dr. Moehlis is a professor of Mechanical Engineering at UCSB and a member of the Center for Control, Dynamical Systems & Computation. He studies dynamical systems from schools of fish to flocks of birds to networks of neurons. Dr. Moehlis has determined how to control populations of neurons, allowing them to be effectively synchronized or desynchronized. He is using these dynamical control strategies to create better interventions for disorders of improper neural synchrony, including Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. Training & awards: Dr. Moehlis has degrees in Physics & Mathematics from Iowa State and UC Berkeley. He trained at Princeton, where he was an NSF Mathematical Sciences fellow. He was a Sloan Research fellow in Mathematics and won the NSF Career Award.
