A mathematician and electronic engineer, Waclaw Timoszyk is an expert in the fields of probability theory and statistics.

His other interests span interdisciplinary subjects that involve information processing, physics, and biology.

He earned his master's degree from Technology University of Wroclaw and a PhD from Wroclaw University, both in Poland.

He worked for five years at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Nigeria, the largest university south of the Sahara Desert. In the United States, he taught for six years at the State University of New York at Oswego and joined the Norwich faculty in 1988.

Soon afterward, he was awarded a NASA grant to work on statistical methods of discovering quark-gluon plasma signatures, which besides statistics involved a lot of particle physics.

Over the years, his research has explored such interdisciplinary questions as the function of sleep from the point of view of processing information in the brain, the role of the Teleportation Paradox in proving that quantum mechanics mechanisms must play a leading role in processing information in the brain, the role of the Godel’s Theorem in the claim that an algorithmic computer cannot act as a human brain, and, given that the memory capacity of the Human Genome is only 800MB, how can we claim that it is a “blueprint” for life?

Timoszyk has spoken widely on these topics and published a book on role of sleep in processing information in the (not necessarily human) brain.
