Fields Complex systems theory
Alma mater University of Rosario, Argentina
Known for Conjecture considering critical phenomena as the brain dynamical state
Influenced Per Bak

Dante R. Chialvo (born 1956) is a professor at Universidad Nacional de San Martin. Together with Per Bak, they put forward concrete models considering the brain as a critical system. Initial contributions focussed on mathematical ideas of how learning could benefit from criticality.[1][2] Further work provided experimental evidence for this conjecture both at large and small scale.[3][4][5][6] He was named Fulbright Scholar in 2005[7] and elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2007.[8][9]
