Lora Billings is a Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Her research program focuses on applied dynamical systems and analyzing chaotic behavior. It is a combination of designing new models, analyzing their dynamics, and finding ways to control them. She works with a variety of applications, including epidemiology, lasers, and swarming objects. She incorporates students in her research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Dr. Billings has over 40 publications, which have appeared in journals such as Physical Review Letters, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Journal of Mathematical Biology. She has had over $1.4M in external funding from NSF, NIH, ARO, etc. Dr. Billings is on the advisory board for the journal CHAOS. She holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Applied Mathematics from University of Colorado, Boulder and B.S. in Mathematics from Lafayette College.
