Alfonso Albano:
A Distinguished Scientist
in Measures of Non-linear Dynamics
and An Exemplary Educator

by Manuela Tarroja-Keller



Professor Alfonso M. Albano, ĎAlí to family, colleagues, friends and students alike, is a distinguished scientist, an exemplary teacher and an outstanding mentor

Alís research experience comprised early work on mathematical physics and non-equilibrium thermodynamics resulting in papers co-authored with distinguished scientists, such as Max Dresden and Peter Mazur. He later branched out to work on the characterization of nonlinear dynamics and complex systems in physical and biological systems. His outstanding work in this field earned him appointments to national committees and editorial boards of professional journals.
