Prof. Anxo Sánchez, PhD in Theoretical Physics (with distinction) from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain, 1991. Fulbright postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA, 1993-1994. Full professor of Applied Mathematics at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, where he founded the Interdisciplinary Group in Complex Systems (GISC, www.gisc.es) in 1996 andalso senior researcher at UC3M-Santander Big Data Institute (IBiDat). He is a founding member and associated researcher with the Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems (BIFI), Universidad de Zaragoza. He has co-authored almost 180 papers and has been an invited speaker at more than 50 national and international conferences. His research has been funded by the Spanish government, the Madrid regional government, NATO, ESF, the European Commission, BBVA Foundation, Repsol and Siemens-Gamesa. While he has contributed in the past to different fields ranging from economics to condensed matter physics through ecology and theoretical computer science, he is currently focused on applications of the physics of complex systems to social and behavioral sciences, including topics related to the structure and dynamics of personal relationships, climate change and computational psychiatry.
