What is your educational background? I have a two years Associate Degree in Sound and later I studied a four years Bachelors Degree in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Zaragoza in Spain, where I was born. What made you apply to Chalmers? Chalmers was one of my best Erasmus options. I came here to do my last courses in Telecommunication Engineering because I had heard good opinions from exchange students who I knew, and also my Erasmus coordinator in Spain recommended to me this university and several concrete courses. Why did you choose CAS in particular? During my bachelor,…
What is your educational background? I have a bachelors degree from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Mechanics and Mathematics faculty. What made you apply to Chalmers? I applied for the Erasmus Mundus Complex System Masters program, and it was possible to spend one year here at Chalmers. Why did you choose CAS in particular? I like the way complex systems could be applied for solving different problems. Also, the program fitted well with my previous background (here I must say, that one advantage of CAS is that it fits well with basically any scientific background). After finishing my bachelor…
What is your educational background? I have studied the first year of a bachelor in "Mathematics and philosophy" in England. Thereafter I did (and finished) a bachelor in Econometrics. What made you apply to Chalmers? I did not apply to Chalmers directly. Im doing the international Erasmus Mundus degree "Complex Systems Science". I must say that I didn’t know much about Chalmers, except that it is supposed to be a good university. How satisfied are you so far with the program? I am a satisfied. The program offers a diverse set of courses that all sound very interesting. Many relatively…
What's your educational background? Engineering physics here at Chalmers. What made you apply to Chalmers in the first place? I was choosing between Lund University and Chalmers, Lund was closer since I am from Helsingborg. In the end I choose Chalmers because I figured it had a better reputation. I don't how much I really thought about it, I sort of ended up here. Well, that's actually a common answer :) What made you apply to CAS? I think I got a little bit bored with physics, always looking at highly idealised systems, and at the same time I read…
Educational Background: Computer science, PhD in Complex systems at Chalmers 2005 with two years at Los Alamos National Laboratory and Santa Fe Institute. Post Doc at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and University of Venice Ca' Foscari 2006. Research Group: Complex Systems Group, Physical Resource Theory Research Topics Mainly in evolutionary social science, epistemology and philosophy of science. How is it to be an assistant professor at the complex systems group? I think it's very good to work in the CS group, nice and interesting colleagues and students. Being a teaching assistant, what do you want us students to…
Background Education: Physics and Mathematics at the Universities of Heidelberg and Cambridge Post graduate education: PhD in Physics (Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, University of Stuttgart) Appointments and postdoctoral positions: Max-Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems Dresden, University of Oxford, University of Freiburg What do you learn at CAS? In my opinion it is essential to work out with pen and paper before programming. It is very important to determine what you expect to get out of your model and its numerical implementaion. Determine simple limiting behaviours analytically. You will learn about many different models for…
