Chris Fink has taught at Ohio Wesleyan since 2013. He applies tools and ways of thinking from physics to better understand the brain. He is interested in the role that neuronal synchronization plays in brain function and dysfunction, with a particular interest in understanding what causes epileptic seizures. He has also worked with an OWU student to develop a brain-controlled video game.
