Michael Dickinson'ís work focuses on the complex systems underlying animal behavior. His current research into the motion of a fly addresses the neuronal signaling within the brain, the dynamics of unsteady fluid flow, the structural mechanics and the behavior of complex nonlinear systems that control the fundamental processes within both the physical and biological sciences. Dickinson received his B.S in Neurobiology from Brown University and his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Washington. While in Tuebingen, Germany, he started his experimental studies on flight aerodynamics. He was an assistant professor at the University of Chicago. He moved to the University of California, Berkeley as an associate professor in the Department of Integrative Biology. He currently is professor of Bioengineering at California Institute of Technology.
