Jeffrey Satinover, M.D.
Jeffrey Satinover, M.D. (psychiatry), (www.satinover.com) M.S. (physics, doctoral candidate in physics). For over twenty years, Dr. Satinover has been an author and practicing psychiatrist. He was until recently a teaching fellow and doctoral student in the department of physics at Yale University, where he has completed a masterï¿½s degree as a member of the Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics group and Yale’s newly-established W. H. Keck Foundation Center for Quantum Information Physics. His area of research is in supersymmetric many-body theory as applied to quantum computation. His most recent book, The Quantum Brain, explores the interface of neuroscience, computation, artificial intelligence and quantum mechanics. He is presently completing his doctorate in physics at the Laboratoire de Physique de la Matiere Condensee at the University of Nice, Sophia Antipolis, under the direction of Didier Sornette, pursuing new techniques in the prediction of chaotic time series, with applications to biological systems, climate change and markets.
Dr. Satinover is past president of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York, a former Fellow in Psychiatry and Child Psychiatry at Yale University and William James Lecturer in Psychology and Religion at Harvard University. He is the author of the chapter on Jungian psychotherapy in the just-released Encyclopedia of Psychotherapy (Academic Press). He speaks widely on matters of public and educational policy and also on the interface of science and religion. He is one of three co-authors of a program of rigorous educational reforms that were adopted by the San Diego Independent School District, the nation’s sixth largest. He has been asked on a number of occasions to consult to Congress and to prepare Supreme Court amici briefs. From time to time his talks are broadcast on C-Span. He served in the United States Army National Guard as a combat helicopter Flight Surgeon for the State of Connecticut and later as an Army Reserve psychiatrist.
Dr. Satinover also designs market-neutral trading strategies for hedge funds that integrate statistical and adaptive (i.e., neural network, genetic algorithm and evolutionary programming) methods with extremely rigorous data collection, error-trapping and analysis.
Dr. Satinover has written five books that have been translated into nine languages worldwide. George Gilder, best-selling author and publisher of the Gilder Technology Report says that “The Quantum Brain is the first great book of the 21st century-and the first definitively 21st century bookï¿½ A heroic and historic new vision that will be read with admiration and amazement in centuries to comeï¿½a promethean work.” Jack Tuzsynski, Professor of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Alberta has hailed it as, “A great feat… Like no other book I know. The Quantum Brain… set[s] new standards for popular science writing. A tapestry of insights from… mathematics, computer science,…quantum physics, cell biology and more. Even the most active players in the fields of artificial intelligence or neurophysiology will find new information in this book.”
Dr. Satinover has also written the book, Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth. He teaches Constitutional Law and Civil Liberties part-time in the Department of Politics at Princeton University (resuming in the Fall of 2005).
Dr. Satinover lives in Weston, Connecticut, his home for twenty-two years, with his wife, Julie. They have three daughters, Sarah, Anni and Jenny.
