Andre Fabio Kohn holds a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of São Paulo - EPUSP (1973), Masters in Electrical Engineering from EPUSP (1976) and Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles - UCLA (1980), where he conducted research at the UCLA Brain Research Institute. In 1994 he conducted research at the National Institutes of Health (Bethesda), specifically at the NINDS. He is Professor of Biomedical Engineering at EPUSP since 1993, where he directs the Laboratory of Biomedical Engineering (LEB /EPUSP). He advises students in both engineering and biomedical sciences. He has experience in biomedical engineering and neuroscience, with emphasis in Human Neurophysiology, Neuroscience and Computational Modeling of Biological Systems, currently focusing on the following topics: postural control in humans, mathematical modeling and simulation of the human neuromuscular system, computational neuroscience, human spinal cord neurophysiology. He is a founding member of the Brazilian Society of Biomedical Engineering, the Center for Research in Neuroscience and Behavior at USP, LEB / EPUSP, and created (with colleagues from LEB/EPUSP) a Biomedical Engineering graduate program in Electrical Engineering at EPUSP. He was elected for two terms as a member of the Advisory Committee of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at CNPq (1991-1993, 2005-2007), the Brazilian equivalent to NSF. He was elected in 2014 to the Brazilian National Academy of Engineering.
