Dr. Christopher Kulp
Physics: Associate Professor
Astronomy: Associate Professor
Christopher Kulp is an Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy. Before coming to Lycoming, Dr. Kulp taught for four years as an Assistant Professor of Physics at Eastern Kentucky University. Dr. Kulp has also taught at The College of William and Mary and McDaniel College.
He earned a B. A. in physics and mathematics from McDaniel and a M. S. and Ph.D. at The College of William and Mary. Dr. Kulp's dissertation was on the control of nonlinear systems.
Dr. Kulp's research interests are in nonlinear dynamics and chaos theory. Most recently he has focused on problems dealing with nonlinear time series analysis and information theory. Currently, Dr. Kulp has been using the methods of nonlinear time series analysis to develop mathematical models of combustion. It is hoped that his work will lead to improvements in the efficiency of industrial burners and optical fire recognition algorithms.
