Members of the Centre for Complexity Science

(Email address given in brackets after name should be followed by

  • Prof Henrik Jensen (h.jensen)  is a professor of Mathematical Physics in the Department of Mathematics. He is leading the programme Complexity Centre. His work focuses on how structure at macro level emerges from the micro level with an emphasis on the role and nature of dynamics.
  • Prof Kim Christensen (k.christensen)  is a professor in Theoretical Physics. He works in the fields of statistical mechanics and complexity science with an emphasis on non-equilibrium systems. His research is an integration of theoretical, computational and experimental studies of complex systems, involving a rigorous mathematical approach to pioneer new ways of analysing such systems.
  • Dr Tim Evans (t.evans) is a senior lecturer in the Theoretical High Energy Group.  He is interested in non-equilibrium systems and in complex networks in particular.  This is both in terms of theoretical models and in terms of real applications and data, usually taken from social systems ranging from economics to bibliometrics and even archaeology.
  • Dr Eduardo Viegas (e.viegas11) is an expert in the application of complexity theory to risk quantification and financial systems and is currently a director of Risk and Complexity Laboratory Limited.
  • Dr Fernando Rosas (f.rosas) is a postdoc researcher at the Centre for Psychedelic Research (Department of Medicine), and the Data Science Institute. His interests lay in the interface between complexity, information theory, and computational neuroscience.
  • Dr Ray Rivers (r.rivers) is an Emeritus Professor in Theoretical Physics at Imperial.  One aspect of his research is on the effect of spatial constraints on patterns of interactions, both in terms of theoretical models and in terms of application to archaeological contexts. 
  • Dr Gunnar Pruessner (g.pruessner) is a senior lecturer in Mathematical Physics and an expert on the mathematical modelling of complex systems such as models of self-organised criticality and reaction/diffusion processes for problems in biochemistry and cell biology .
  • Dr Paul Expert  (paul.expert08) is postdoctoral postdoctoral research in the Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics section of the Maths department working on neuroscience applications.
