Yaroslav Prytula was a visiting scholar at The George Washington University
during the 2003-2004 academic year. His visit was sponsored by the
Development Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of State's
Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. At GWU he was associated with
the Research Program in Social and Organizational Learning.
Professor Robert Dunn was his mentor at GWU.
Mr. Prytula was not new to Washington, D.C, or to The George Washington University. In 2001 he came here as a visiting research scholar at the Elliott School of International Affairs, The Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies. From August till December he conducted research in the field of the growth of transition economies. The research was supported by a William and Helen Petrach Scholarship that he won in 2001.
In the summer 2004, he was an intern at NPA Data Services, Inc. in Washington, D.C. There he was engaged in research on micro- and macroeconomics. He worked on data collection, econometric modeling and forecasting.
Mr. Prytula was awarded his PhD in Complex Analysis from Lviv Ivan Franko National University (LIFNU) in 2000. His thesis research was "Asymptotic Behavior of Maximum Modulus and Maximal Term of Dirichlet Series." Back home in Lviv, Ukraine, he is an associate professor in the Department of International Economic Relations of LIFNU.
In 1997 he received his Specialist's Diploma with Honors (equivalent of a Master's Degree). He graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of LIFNU. Mr. Prytula has received numerous awards and scholarships. Among them are a George Soros student grant that he won in 1996. One year earlier he won a Pidstrygach Scholarship for the Best Student Article in Mathematics.
