MONTBRIÓ FAIREN, ERNEST
Ernest Montbrió is Associate Professor in our department since 2014. He studied Physics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (1999) and received his Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Potsdam (Germany) in 2004. His research focuses on the study of complex, nonlinear dynamical systems and its application to model wide-ranging problems, mostly in biology. This includes problems in computational neuroscience (emergence of large-scale oscillations in neuronal networks, synchronization, memory formation and consolidation, perceptual alternations) and, more generally, problems investigating the origin and function of biological oscillations. He has authored 13 articles all published in world-leading journals of Physics. His research receives funding from national and international agencies, including an EU ITN-European Joint Doctorate project.
