Profile

Philip Holmes is an applied mathematician and engineer. He is especially interested in nonlinear dynamics, with applications to physical and biological systems. His current work focuses on two mainareas: the neuromechanics of locomotion, and the dynamics of congnitive control and decision making. In the former area he collaborates with biomechanicians and neuroscientists at UC Berkeley (R.J. Full) and U Maryland (A.H. Cohen) on insect locomotion and swimming in lamprey. In the latter he collaborates with colleagues at Princeton including J.D. Cohen (Psychology). He works on mathematical and computational models in neuroscience from the cellular scale to the level of brain areas, that address both mechanisms and behavioral outcomes.
