I am external faculty at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna.
I am affiliated member of the Centre for Science and Philosophy at Bristol University.
Winter Term 2022/23
Discussion meetings: day and time tbc (1.084, visitors welcome)
In my research I develop information theory to study the dynamics of complex systems. Applications range from physics and biology to social systems. This research is part of a long-term project of building a quantitative framework for the dynamics of complex systems, firmly rooted in mathematics, physics, and philosophy of science. Current topics are:
