We regularly welcome renowned scientists and outstanding early-career researchers for short visits to our institute. Below you can find an overview of visiting researchers that are engaged in setting up new areas of research at the IAS, and therefore visit us more frequently.
Visiting researchers 2017-2018
Advisor Complexity, Resilience Energy Transition
Visiting Professor Singapore Management University
My research interests include Complexity and Public Policy in areas such as urban resilience, climate policy or foresight. Being a theoretical physicist by training, I have spent a decade each at AT&T and at Shell in various senior executive positions. Books include The Essence of Scenarios, Complexity and the Art of Public Policy, and Turbulence: A Corporate Perspective on Collaborating for Resilience.
At the IAS, I am involved in research questions related to Complexity and Governance.
My personal website
Assistant Professor, School of Arts, Media and Engineering, Arizona State University
My research lies at the intersections of continental philosophy and science & technology studies, digital culture and aesthetics, and design. I have published numerous essays on media theory, artificial life, architecture, the history of biotechnology, and process philosophy. I am also founding director of the Laboratory for Critical Technics at Arizona State University.
At the IAS, I am involved in questions related to Art, Humanities and Science.
National Research Foundation fellow, School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore.
Currently, my focus is on how we can exploit quantum mechanics to construct the simplest simulators of complex physical processes. How can we characterise non-classical correlations that are the resource for quantum speed-up?
I head the quantum and complexity science initiative at NTU in Singapore which seeks to explore how complexity science generalises in a quantum world.
