Richard Taylor PHD,

Science Director

Dr. Taylor is a world-renowned physicist with a love for art and running. With over 325 publications (12 in Nature, 4 in Science), Dr. Taylor focuses his time now on fractal research at the University of Oregon. A fractal is a self-repeating structure that can be found in math and nature, such as the Mandelbrot set, and a tree. Fractal research has far-reaching implications for neuroscience, physiology, vision science and visual art. When Dr. Taylor joined forces with our lead engineer Cooper Boydston to examine running patterns produced in our lab, he became highly interested in their fractal quality. Since then, Dr. Taylor has been an instrumental part of Project Dasein’s scientific development as we revolutionize the art of running.
