Gerard LaVarnway, PhD, graduated with a BS in secondary education (mathematics and science) cum laude from Norwich University in 1978.

He continued his graduate studies at the University of Vermont, earning an MS in mathematics in 1983 and his PhD in mathematical sciences in 1999. His research focused on Besicovitch almost-periodic functions analysis.

LaVarnway received eight consecutive U.S. Navy/American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Summer Faculty Research Fellowships. From 1984 to 1991, he pursued applied research at the Naval Ocean Systems Center in San Diego, Calif. This research involved the development of classification algorithms for the identification of radar and remote tracking of ships at sea. During that time, LaVarnway published several classified technical documents in the area of ocean surveillance.

His current research interests include classification algorithms, ocean surveillance, cryptology, and mathematics education. Recently, he has been involved with implementing non-parametric statistical techniques to predict academic success.
