Martin Zwick

Professor of System Science

Portland State University


pictureMartin Zwick received his Bachelor's Degree in physics from Columbia University in 1960. He served as a Project Officer in the Physics Branch of the Office of Naval Research while in military service during 1960-63. He did graduate work in Biophysics at MIT and was awarded his Ph.D. in 1968. After a postdoctoral year in the Stanford University Department of Biochemistry, he took a position as a faculty member in the Department of Biophysics and Theoretical Biology at the University of Chicago. His research in this period was in mathematical crystallography and macromolecular structure. In the 1970's his interests shifted to systems theory and methodology, and since 1976 he has been on the faculty of the Systems Science Ph.D. Program at PSU. During the years 1984-1989, he was Coordinator, then Director, of the Program.  His main research interests (click on Research above) are in discrete multivariate modeling, artificial life/theoretical biology, and systems philosophy. He teaches courses (click on Courses above) in these areas and in systems theory and game theory.
