Recent Scientific Publications
Örjan Ekeberg received his MSc degree in engineering physics and applied mathematics from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in 1981. After a few years as head of the systems engineers group at the department of Numerical Analysis and Computing Science (NADA), he took up his studies and received his PhD degree in computer science in 1992. He was appointed assistant professor (universitetslektor) in 1994, associate professor (docent) in 1996, and full professor in 2011.
He was an invited Resident Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Study in Berlin 2001-2002, and a STINT Visiting Professor at Vassar College in New York 2009.
Örjan Ekeberg has been involved in the development of both artificial and biological neural network models with an emphasis on the integration of these two lines of research. His research lab develops and uses simulation methods for studying the neuronal control of motor behavior.
His thesis work was on biologically realistic computer simulation techniques used in the study of swimming patterns. Parts this work was done in close collaboration with the Nobel Institute for Neurophysiology at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm. He has developed a number of simulation packages for numerical neuronal simulations. He is now developing the techniques to do the integrated neuro-mechanical simulations necessary when studying the neuronal control systems that operate in close contact with the environment.
Örjan Ekeberg is currently responsible for these courses:
"To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists solutions are things that are still all mixed up."
