Christopher Kulp is a Professor of Physics and Chair of the Department of Astronomy & Physics. Before coming to Lycoming, Dr. Kulp taught for four years as an Assistant Professor of Physics at Eastern Kentucky University. Dr. Kulp has also taught at The College of William and Mary and McDaniel College. Dr. Kulp's dissertation was on the control of nonlinear systems.

Dr. Kulp's research interests are in nonlinear dynamics and chaos theory, in particular he has most recently focused on developing novel algorithms for time series characterization. In addition, Dr. Kulp has been using the methods of nonlinear time series analysis to develop mathematical models of combustion. It is hoped that his work will lead to improvements in the efficiency of industrial burners, air craft engines, and optical fire recognition algorithms.
