Diana Dabby, Ph.D
Using her background in electrical engineering, music performance and composition, she has developed research that utilizes chaos theory to generate musical variations of an original work. Her presentation of this work was unanimously chosen for Best Poster Prize at the 1995 International SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems, and was also the topic of a series of concert/lectures she presented in Hong Kong and Chicago. More recently, she has given a number of invited concert/lectures on her work sponsored by MIT, Princeton University, Cornell University, and Dartmouth College, among others. She is currently writing a book entitled Variations and Shadows -- Music from Chaos, supported in part by grants from MIT and Tufts.
As a concert pianist, Diana Dabby has performed solo concerts in New York's Weill (Carnegie) Recital Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, and in Budapest, Hungary and Hong Kong, among other venues. As a chamber musician, and as a composer, she has performed at Boston's Jordan Hall, Symphony Hall and at Tanglewood.
She has received excellent teaching reviews for courses she has taught at MIT and Tufts University in electrical engineering, music, and the intersection of art and science.
