As an applied mathematician, Prof. Redner has been involved in the application of mathematics and statistics in remote sensing, computer graphics, geophysics and statistical genetics. Most recently, he joined the Institute of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, where he hopes that his experience with optimization theory, splines and statistics will be of value as we work to better understand the human brain and how it works.
