Edward Hood Taplin Professor, Medical Engineering and Computational Neuroscience
Emery Brown is the Edward Hood Taplin Professor of Medical Engineering and Computational Neuroscience at MIT; the Warren M. Zapol Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School; and a practicing anesthesiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. Prof. Brown is an anesthesiologist-statistician whose experimental research has made important contributions to understanding how anesthetics act in the brain to create the states of general anesthesia. In his statistics research he has developed signal processing algorithms to study dynamic processes in neuroscience. Prof. Brown served on the NIH BRAIN Initiative Working Group. He is the recipient of an NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, an NIH Director’s Transformative Research Award, the Jerome Sacks Award from the National Institute of Statistical Science and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, the American Statistical Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the IEEE, and the American Academy of Arts Sciences.
