Lilianne R. Mujica-Parodi is Director of the Laboratory for Computational Neurodiagnostics, Baszucki Chair of Metabolic Neuroscience, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and Core Faculty in the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology (Stony Brook University). In addition, she is Research Staff Scientist and Lecturer in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School (Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging), and External Professor at the Santa Fe Institute. Dr. Mujica-Parodi received her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Georgetown University and Columbia University, respectively, studying mathematical logic and foundations of physics. After her Ph.D. (Niles G. Whiting Fellow), she completed an NIH Training Fellowship in Clinical Neuroscience at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. She was subsequently promoted to faculty there, where she performed research until being recruited by Stony Brook University. She is the recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Career Award, the United States Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering, and the Fulbright Distinguished Scholar Award. Dr. Mujica-Parodi‘s research extends control systems engineering and dynamical systems to human neuroimaging, with applications to neurological and psychiatric disorders.  In 2023, Mujica-Parodi and co-founders at Stony Brook, MIT, and Dartmouth launched Neuroblox Inc., a software startup.
