Michele Ferrante

Postdoctoral Scientist, Boston University
PhD in Neuroscience from George Mason University

Michele's research focus is on Whole-cell Electrophysiology, Biotechnology, Optogenetics, Neuropharmacology, and Computational Models. Michele employs Electrophysiology in brain slices - patch clamp and neuropharmacology.
implements biophysically realistic models of neurons.

Bob Weigel, PhD Physics… George Mason

Associate Professor, George Mason University
Director, Space Weather Lab - Department of Physics and Astronomy

My research involves two broad areas: Space Weather (or Space Plasma Physics) and Data Sciences. My research interests include magnetospheric physics and geomagnetism, solar wind/magnetosphere/ionosphere coupling, inverse methods for magnetospheric modeling, nonlinear dynamics, decision theory applied to rare event forecasting, scientific visualization, and large-scale time series databases.

Paras Kaul

Brainwave Specialist, Web Designer, and Hub Curator

Paras explores applications that utilize brain wave analysis, multimedia, and neurofeedback for interactive gaming to train the brain for learning and rehabilitation. Paras is testing how tuning the mind for the brain to emit low frequencies with coherence between the right and left hemispheres of the brain can stimulate wellness in the physical body.

Paras has been managing web projects for over 15 years including 10 years as Director of Web Communications at George Mason University

Maria Dworzecka, PhD… Chair GMU Physics

Professor of Physics, George Mason University
Chair, Department of Physics and Astronomy

Dr. Dworzecka's research interests include investigating the dynamical properties of low energy heavy ion collisions, with the goal of understanding the basic reaction mechanism and the associated nuclear excitation modes. The emphasis is on gaining insight into the basic physical process rather than model building. She has developed computer software for use in upper level physics courses and WEB resources for lower level physics and astronomy courses.

Brian B. Doyle

Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Family Community Medicine, Georgetown University Medical School
Private practice, Washington, D.C

Dr. Doyle has extensively published articles on Anxiety, Depression, and ADHD. He is the co-author of The Impaired Physician and the author of Understanding and Treating Adults with ADHD. Dr. Doyle has been honored as one of the Best Doctors in America from 1997 to present and honored by the American College of Psychiatrists. He has also been a past President of the National Association of Medical Communicators.

Katie Yang, PhD candidate, Wisconsin

Katie Yang, a doctoral candidate in neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, has received a prestigious Gilliam Fellowships for Advanced Study from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI).

Katie's research focus is on the peripheral mechanisms of vocal and swallowing deficits in a rat model of Parkinson Disease. Katie is a member of the lab of Dr. Michelle Ciucci, assistant professor of surgery, and is one of two UW-Madison graduate students to earn the fellowship.

Alexandra Rosser

B.S., Neuroscience, George Mason University

Alexandra Rosser is a medical education researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is interested in neuroscience, data science, genetics, ethology, and the biological bases of language ability.
