Welcome to the Complex Systems and Neural Dynamics Lab

In the CSND lab, our primary focus is to understand the dynamics in the brain, although we are broadly interested in complex systems in general - for example, ecological and evolutionary dynamics, languages etc. We are housed within the computer technology group in the Electrical Engineering Department.

We develop and use tools for discovering and modeling dynamical patterns in the brain across scales, from the single neuron level to EEG recordings that reflect the aggregate activity of millions of neurons. Please see our research page for details of our work.

We are also beginning some experimental work on cognition using EEG in the lab, and thinking about how the study of cognition can be taken outside the lab, in real-world contexts. For this, we are looking to develop wearables and algorithms to estimate brain state, moods or emotions in day to day contexts.

We are a fun group who like to experiment, try new directions and ideas without bounding ourselves. We also like to build stuff (small electronics that solve our small problems etc.).

We are looking for enthusiastic new PhD students, Masters and undergraduate students to join the team (more info) !
