bryce beverlin II



Bryce is a physicist with a PhD in Physics, a BS in Physics and Astrophysics, and a minor in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota. He conducted biophysical cross-disciplinary research in Dr. Tay Netoff's lab in Biomedical Engineering, investigating the role of neural oscillations in the brain related to epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. Bryce designed and built a realistic model of a closed-loop feedback system using deep-brain stimulation for the treatment of epilepsy. His research synthesizes neurophysics, mathematical modeling, and medical device development. He has published in the Journal of Computational Neuroscience, Frontiers of Systems Neuroscience, Frontiers of Computational Neuroscience and Springer books. As a post-doc fellow at the Medical Devices Center (MDC) at the University of Minnesota, Bryce learned and practiced the process of developing medical devices. Subsequently as a teaching faculty member at the MDC he taught the process of developing medical technologies, designed and lead a project-focused program in collaboration between the MDC and a Japanese company. Currently, he is pioneering the development of next-generation inhaler technologies for the treatment of lung diseases including asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis. In the public, Bryce has consulted for artistic projects, most interestingly as "The Physicist" with the Body Cartography's production of "½ life," a multidisciplinary work for the stage centered on the development of nuclear energy. He has also delivered several public scientific lectures around the country and enjoys inspiring the next generation of scientists.
