    Postdoctoral researcher at Centro de Astrobiología (INTA-CSIC)

    My career as a researcher began with my degree in Physics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2013. Subsequently, I specialized in biophysics through a master's degree, whose thesis was a research project, focused on the mathematical study of animal behavior, at the Cajal Institute (CSIC) in collaboration with Yale University (USA). After my master's thesis, I was invited to develop a research stay at the Yale University School of Medicine to deepen my master project line. Since then, my career has been consolidated around the biophysical modeling of different biological processes. In particular, my doctoral thesis focused on the study and modeling (at experimental and mathematical level) of cell signaling during embryonic development. During my PhD thesis at CBMSO, I collaborated with different international groups at the University of St Andrews (Scotland) and at the Biozentrum (Switzerland). In addition, I did a research stay at the ETH Zürich in the D-BSSE department (Basel, Switzerland). I obtained my PhD with Cum Laude mention on 2020. Afterwards, I have collaborated with different biophysical research lines at the University of Granada. Currently, I work at the Centro de Astrobiología (INTA-CSIC) as a postdoctoral researcher through the María de Maeztu Unit of Excellence program. My work focuses on the study and modeling of different biological systems and processes. My current research line is a complexity approach to the origin of life, in particular the study of the first RNA replication on the early Earth conditions. My expertise includes theoretical and experimental skills such as: i) In silico modeling using mathematical and physical tools (e.g. complex systems), ii) Computational methods and software development, iii) Biochemical experiments in Drosophila tissues, using different genetic tools (e.g. UAS-Gal4) and molecular techniques (e.g. fluorescence immunohistochemistry) and iv) Confocal microscopy and quantitative image analysis.

    I am a postdoc at the Department of Network and Data Science at Central European University in Budapest. I did my PhD in nonlinear dynamics, where I studied the influence of noise on coupled excitable systems at the Institute of Physics in Belgrade, Serbia. At some point I stumbled upon ordering dynamics on networks and got really curious about all this network stuff. After participating in CSH’s Complex Systems Winter School in 2019, I had absolutely fallen in love with this field, and I decided I must switch after my PhD! This endeavor was successful, and I am currently studying physical networks in the group of Albert-Laszlo Barabasi. We are expanding the frontiers of network science: the links and nodes in our network models, instead of being abstract connections, have thickness and volume, just as they do in many real-world networks. Our goal is to understand how physicality affects the structure, functionality and evolution of networks.

    PostDoc at Instituto de Fisica Interdisciplinar y Sistemas Complejos (IFISC)

    Research interests lie in both classical and quantum complex systems. I have extensive experience in open quantum systems, as during my PhD the main focus of my studies has been the dynamics of impurities in Bose Einstein Condensates (BEC), which were examined under the prism of quantum Brownian motion. Particular emphasis was given on the non-Markovianity of the aforementioned dynamics as well as their anomalously diffusing kinetics and their dependence on the BEC characteristics. Entanglement among two such impurities immersed in BEC was also studied, as well as the transfer of heat between two impurities immersed in two distinct BECs. During my PhD I have also worked on developing models of anomalous diffusion emerging in the context of interacting particle dynamics. These were aimed at describing observations of the diffusing dynamics of protein receptors that lie on the cell's membrane. I also have experience in anomalous diffusion in fluctuating environments, and more specifically one described by the Glauber-Ising model dynamics. Currently I am working on two research lines. First I study the role of the topology of the network of interactions in models of opinion dynamics, e.g. the voter model, in both the static and the dynamically evolving scenarios. I am also interested in the performance of quantum reservoir computers, and in particular in identifying the role that particle statistics play in it.

  • Aaron Clauset

    at University of Colorado Boulder

    Aaron Clauset is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and the BioFrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder, and is External Faculty at the Santa Fe Institute, where he was also an Omidyar Fellow. He is an internationally recognized expert on network science, computational social science, and machine learning for complex systems. Clauset's research aims to identify fundamental principles of organization for complex social and biological systems, and how data and computation can be used to illuminate them. Much of this work is organized around two themes. The first theme focuses on how interactions at smaller scales within a system drive regularities and dynamics at larger scales, i.e., how simplicity arises from complexity. The second focuses on developing advanced computational methods that can automatically characterize large-scale regularities and either connect them with causal mechanisms at smaller scales or exploit them to make predictions. He explores these ideas in the context of complex networks, patterns in conflict and war, the social forces that shape scientific careers and discoveries, macroevolutionary dynamics, and the dynamics of cancer. He is also deeply interested in the epistemology of complex systems, and in the ways we can evaluate causal hypotheses and models when complex effects can have complex causes. In 2016, he was awarded the Erdos-Renyi Prize in Network Science for his foundational contributions to the field, which have transformed our understanding of the structure and diversity of real-world networks. He widely known for his seminal work on modeling the statistics of rare events in complex systems, and in particular for the analysis of power-law distributions in empirical data.

  • Andrea Luppi

    PhD student at University of Cambridge

    I am an Italian neuroscientist with a background in philosophy and cognitive science. I am interested in how the mind arises from the complex interactions between brain systems. For my PhD in Clinical Neurosciences, I work on the application of measures from network science and information theory to study the brain across multiple scales and in a variety of states of altered consciousness – such as anaesthesia and vegetative state, but also sleep and psychedelics. Ultimately, I would like to develop a landscape of altered states of consciousness, and a unified understanding of how consciousness is lost, and how we can promote its recovery in patients.

  • Joel Miller

    Senior Lecturer at La Trobe University

    I am a Senior Lecturer at La Trobe University. My research focuses primarily on the spread of infectious diseases through contact networks, though more recently I have been focusing on many other disease-related topics even if there isn't an underlying network that we're focused on. I coauthored a monograph on mathematical models of disease spread in networks (Mathematics of Epidemics on Networks), and I have written an open-source software package (https://epidemicsonnetworks.readthedocs.io/en/latest/) for modeling disease spread in contact networks. I spent a decade co-teaching network-based epidemiology at the Summer Institute in Statistics and Modeling in Infectious Diseases at U Washington. Although I am an applied mathematician, much of my time has been spent working in policy-driven settings. I did my PhD in fluid dynamics at Cambridge. Then I had postdoc at Los Alamos National Laboratory, a postdoc at the University of British Columbia Centre for Disease Control, and another postdoc split between the Harvard School of Public Health and the National Institutes for Health. I then took a faculty position at Penn State University, but following the birth of my daughter decided that living in the same place as my wife (who was in Boston) was a good idea. So we found positions at Monash University in Melbourne. We soon changed our minds on living in the same place (not really), and I began working at the Institute for Disease Modeling in Seattle, while my wife remained in Melbourne. I have now returned to Melbourne and am at La Trobe University.

  • Theodore Pavlic

    Associate Professor at Arizona State University

    Theodore Pavlic has an interdisciplinary background, starting with a doctorate in electrical and computer engineering, progressing through research appointments in computer science and life sciences, leading to his current joint appointment as an assistant professor in the School of Sustainability and the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence at Arizona State University. His research focuses on understanding adaptive decision-making strategies in autonomous systems. To this end, his laboratory does empirical work with natural systems, such as social-insect colonies, and does engineering work building decision-making algorithms for artificial systems, such as decentralized energy management systems for the built environment. Just as the biological models provide inspiration for novel engineering solutions, the engineering problems inspire new lines of scientific inquiry about those biological systems. This bidirectional flow is facilitated by solid mathematical models of fundamental decision-making processes in common with both the natural and engineered systems. Professor Pavlic is the associate director of research for The Biomimicry Center at Arizona State University. He is also active in several professional organizations and publication venues across engineering and life sciences. He is a faculty member in Sustainability, Industrial Engineering, Computer Engineering, Applied Math in the Life and Social Sciences, Biology, and Animal Behavior, and he is active in several of the complexity-related groups across ASU's campus.

  • Nicola Pedreschi

    PhD Student at Aix-Marseille Université

    I was born in Barga (Lucca, Italy) on 1 January 1992, and I grew up in Pisa where I accomplished most of my studies. I lived in Boston, MA, for a year in 2009-2010 and I spent six months in Paris as an ERASMUS student in 2016. I have a solid scientific and humanistic background due to the scientific lyceum I attended for five years (regular high-school duration in Italy). I spent my fourth high-school year in Boston, Massachusetts, at Brookline High School: this experience allowed me to achieve a solid competence in spoken and written English language. In 2011 I applied to study physics at King’s College, in London, where I was admitted to the Bachelor Physics programme. Eventually I opted for the University of Pisa, where, during my three years of Bachelor degree, I developed strong mathematical modeling and problem solving skills. I was introduced to the main different research fields and topics that physicists have challenged themselves with in the past century. I then decided to focus my graduate studies on the broad field of Statistical Physics and its applications to disordered and complex systems. Complexity therefore became more and more the core of my scientific interests, so I decided to move to Paris for a semester, in order to attend some dedicated courses at UPMC (Paris VI). The interdisciplinary nature of this area of statistical physics is what really fascinates me: applying the same tools and reasoning framework to so many different areas of natural and social sciences, from disordered physical systems to information theory, from molecular dynamics to economics, is a thrilling and challenging possibility. For these reasons I am decided to continue my academic education with a PhD that will allow me to deepen and strengthen my understanding of the theory of complex systems.

    Assistant Professor at University of Amsterdam

    I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Computational Science in the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam. Supervised by Prof. Dr. Peter M.A. Sloot I am formulating a theory of information processing in complex systems, more specifically, systems with complex networks of interactions. My goal is to use information theory as a universal language to describe the behavior of such systems. In particular, I believe it may provide a bridge between microscopic and macroscopic information, and may express causal relations. This can be used to characterize the behavior of a system as a whole in terms of local dynamics. I obtained the Ph.D. in Computational Science at the University of Amsterdam in 2013, the M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology, U.S.A., and the B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

    "Céline Rozenblat researches are widely directed on the relations between evolutions of powers and values and networks dynamics into systems of territories. In order to develop these topics in a comparative point of view, she built many large database on European cities and on networks since 1987. In particular, the question of comparizon was extremely delicate for European cities and she produced with Pumain and St-Julien, Cattan """"the concept of cities in Europe"""" for Eurostat (1991). She built since 1990 representative database on located multinational firms networks leading her to deal with territorial dynamics and actors' strategies in the same time. This duality obliged her to rethink multi-level approaches in geography, largely inspired by sociology of networks and physics. Diachronical and dynamic studies supply materials to develop spatial and dynamic models, simulations and vizualisations."

I work on developing philosophical theories that incorporate the lessons from complexity science (see complexphilosophy.com ) with my first foray being to develop a like ethical theory - which I call "complex-information theory." Also, in big history, which is the term we use for "history of the universe," the primary overarching theme is that of increasing complexity. Hence, I am interested in complexity from at least 2 major perspectives and look forward to attending your conferences, reading your insights, and perhaps even prompting the International Big History Association to become part of your community!

  • Philip York

    Lecture in Operations Management at University of York

    My current research interests are focused around applying systems theory, complex systems theory, and network analysis techniques to investigating the operations of organisations and groups of organisations (business, governments etc). I combine modelling and simulation techniques (agent based modelling, and network analysis) with the analysis of information (natural language processing and machine learning/AI) to investigate how organisations and society works, and how interventions can be made. Related to this I am interested in how the culture, memory, and knowledge of an organisation can be theorised as an emergent property of the complex system itself. I am also interested in the power of information and its consequences for our privacy and liberty, and I conduct research on whistleblowers, cyber security, and leaks. I also have a philosophical interest in complexity theory and complex thinking. Including the intellectual origins of the work (Cybernetics and systemic theory), what these techniques say about failure, and the links between complexity and Assemblages and Atmospheres.
