Jeffrey Olafsen is an Associate Professor of Physics at Baylor University, Texas. His research focuses on experimental nonequilibrium and nonlinear dynamics, including granular systems, biomechanics and imaging algorithms. He grew up in Panama City, Florida and obtained undergraduate degrees in physics and mathematics from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1989. He then attended Duke University and received his physics MA in 1991 and his physics PhD in 1994.
