At Ohio State Golubitsky served as Director of the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (2008-16).
Dr. Golubitsky works in the fields of nonlinear dynamics and bifurcation
theory studying the role of symmetry in the formation of patterns in physical
systems and the role of network architecture in the dynamics of coupled systems.
His recent research focuses on some mathematical aspects of biological applications: animal gaits, the visual cortex, homeostasis, and coupled systems.
He has co-authored four graduate texts, one undergraduate text, and two nontechnical trade books, (
