J. Rimas Vaisnys
Ph.D., University of California at Berkeley
Professor Vaisnys' research centers on ecological and evolutionary processes, on the behavior of dynamical systems, and on the physics of computation. Specific systems of study have ranged from phage to hominids.
Professor Vaisnys is interested in the behavior of real systems and in using observational and theoretical techniques most appropriate to a given situation.
Most recently, he has been applying techniques drawn from probability theory and statistics, discrete and computational mathematics, linear algebra, and differential equations.
