Cecilia Diniz Behn

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Gettysburg College.

Research Interests

My research in mathematical and computational neuroscience focuses on developing and applying techniques from dynamical systems theory to understanding neurophysiologic mechanisms for sleep/wake regulation. During the course of my graduate training in the Department of Mathematics and the Center for BioDynamics at Boston University and my postdoctoral training in the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan, I have developed a strong, externally-funded research program in applied math with vital connections to experimentalists in the field of sleep medicine.

Current research projects address the following:
