Jorge J. Riera (M’99-01) received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the University of Havana, Cuba. Part of his PhD thesis was performed during two-term CNRS fellowships at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris. He obtained the MSc degree in Biophysics with credits from the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Italy and the Cuban Neuroscience Center, Cuba. From 2000-2014 he was postdoctoral research fellow at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Tokyo and the New Industry Creation Hachery Center (NICHe), Tohoku University, Sendai. He joined the Faculty at Tohoku University School of Medicine in 2004, where he established the Neuronal Mass Dynamics laboratory for Brain Imaging in small animals. In 2012, he was appointed Associate Professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Florida International University. His research is focused on developing strategies to integrate different modalities of brain imaging for the understanding of multicellular signaling in the neocortex. Dr. Riera has more than 60 peer-reviewed publications. He is currently on the editorial boards of several journals and is member of several professional societies.
