Thomas Whalen’s Research Interests

My research interests center around using mathematical, computational, possibilistic, and logical models (including fuzzy logic) to applications that are intractable to conventional analytical and statistical techniques unless questionable simplifying assumptions are imposed.

In the past I have successfully collaborated with experts in risk and hazard assessment, medical malpractice insurance, microbiology, placement of children needing adoption, manufacturing and design of control systems, forecasting, electronic commerce, and postmodern philosophy.  I am always enthusiastic about the opportunity to broaden my hrorizons while making practical contributions applying my modeling skills in new and important areas.
