Dr. Sridevi Sarma, presented at the 2013 SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) Conference on Applied Dynamical Systems. The conference was held at the Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, Snowbird, Utah, USA, from May 19-23. Dr. Sarma’s presentation was entitled “On the Therapeutic Mechanisms of Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s Disease: Annihilation or Restoration?”

From SIAM’s site: “The application of dynamical systems theory to areas outside of mathematics continues to be a vibrant, exciting and fruitful endeavor. These application areas are diverse and multidisciplinary, ranging over all areas of applied science and engineering, including biology, chemistry, physics, finance, and industrial applied mathematics. This conference strives to achieve a blend of application-oriented material and the mathematics that informs and supports it. The goals of the meeting are a cross-fertilization of ideas from different application areas, and increased communication between the mathematicians who develop dynamical systems techniques and applied scientists who use them.”
