Edinburgh University

Richard A. Blythe is a Lecturer in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, having graduated with a PhD from the same institution in 2001. He specializes in the modeling, simulation and mathematical analysis of evolving complex systems. His early work was focused on the consequences of physical and biophysical interactions, but has since expanded to embrace social systems, primarily through collaboration with William Croft. He has also worked with linguists at Edinburgh on a combined mathematical and experimental framework for quantifying the efficiency of different language-acquisition strategies.
