Arthur D. Little Global Management Consultancy
As an undergraduate at Princeton, Dr. Rusin won a provisional patent for his thesis on electrohydrodynamic patterning and self-assembly of colloidal crystals. Applying his academic knowledge to problems of real-world companies, he then worked with Fortune 500 clients in his job as analyst for Arthur D. Little. During this time, Dr. Rusin developed novel technologies ranging from personal nerve agent detectors for first responders to artificial intelligence systems for home appliances.
Moving on to the University of Virginia for his doctorate, Dr. Rusin worked under advisor Jack Hudson, a member of the National Academy of Engineering. His research at UVA yielded a generalized method for controlling the collective behavior of complex rhythmic systems, published in the prestigious journal Science. Today, Dr. Rusin focuses on applying these rhythmic engineering techniques to the physiological signals generated by critically ill patients, with the goal of improving clinical care through real-time physiological analysis and forecasting.
