Born on November 9, 1948 in Warsaw, Poland, Dr. Michael Misiurewicz is an internationally renowned mathematician. He received a master's degree from the University of Warsaw in 1971 and a Ph.D. from the same institution in 1974. Dr. Misiurewicz's research focuses on a variety of topics. Principally, he has conducted research on Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory, which examine the evolution of systems over time. This research seeks to build connection between these topics and other areas of mathematics as well as their application. More recently, he has also conducted research examining random dynamic systems and quasiperiodically forced systems, connecting them to Braid and Game Theories. His research has also examined links between these systems and Economics and Mathemetical biology. Dr. Misiurewicz has been honored in a variety of ways over the course of his career. He has been inducted as a fellow of the Polish Academy of Sciences and American Mathematical Society. He has also received the Sierpinski Medal, Mazur Prize, and Mazurkiewicz Prize from the Polish Mathematical Society.
