scientific bio

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 at the University of Minnesota, Bryce learned and practiced the process of developing medical devices. Currently he teaches these methods and is also inventing and developing new medical devices. Bryce has consulted for 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 delivered several public scientific lectures around the country and is developing a scientific educational program for youth.
