Lilianne R. Mujica-Parodi, is Director of the Laboratory for Computational Neurodiagnostics, and Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Program in Neuroscience. She received her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Georgetown University and Columbia University, respectively, studying mathematical logic and theoretical physics. After her Ph.D. (Niles G. Whiting Fellow), she completed a three-year NIH Training Fellowship in Schizophrenia Research at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Dr. Mujica-Parodi was subsequently promoted to Assistant Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at Columbia's College of Physicians and Surgeons, where she performed research for two years until being recruited by Stony Brook University. She is the recipient of the National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Affective Disorder's Young Investigator Award (Essel Investigator), the National Science Foundation's Career Award, and the White House's Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering. Dr. Mujica-Parodi's research interests focus on the use of chaos theory to identify emergent properties of dysregulation for nested control circuits in the brain, with neurodiagnostic applications to neurological and psychiatric disorders.
