Dr. Miranda-Dominguez is interested on understanding how mental and neurological disorders affect brain circuitry and how this information can be used to obtain a deeper understanding of the disease and to design model-based approaches to therapeutics, including but not limited to adaptive interventions and non-invasive neuromodulation.

Awards & Recognition

  • 3rd Place in the National Prize in Academic Research for the creation of the program of Biomedical Engineering at the Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico, granted by the Mexican Federation of Private Institutions of Higher Education (FIMPES: Federación de Instituciones Mexicanas Particulares de Educación Superior) (2004)


Research Summary/Interests

To use brain connectivity to characterize typical and atypical development and to inform treatment in mental health.
