Martin Zwick is a professor of systems science at Portland State University. After initially working in crystallography and macromolecular structure, his interests shifted to systems theory and methodology, the field now known as the study of chaos, complexity, and complex adaptive systems.ᅠHis main research areas are information-theoretic modeling, theoretical biology, and systems philosophy. Scientifically, his focus is on applying systems ideas and methods to the natural and social sciences, especially to biomedical problems, the evolution of cooperation, and sustainability. Philosophically, his focus is on how systems ideas relate to classical and contemporary philosophy, how they offer a bridge between science and religion, and how they can help us understand and address societal problems.
