Neil Johnson |

Neil Johnson heads up a new inter-disciplinary research group in Complexity
at University of Miami (Physics Dept.) looking at collective behavior and
emergent properties in a wide range of real-world Complex Systems: from physical,
biological and medical domains through to social and financial domains.
The common feature which makes Complex Systems so hard to understand, and yet
so fascinating to study, is that they all contain many interacting objects,
with strong feedback from both inside and outside the system, and are typically
far from equilibrium and exhibit extreme behavior. Neil's research group continues
to develop new interdisciplinary projects with other departments and schools within
the University of Miami (including medicine, life sciences and social sciences) and
with other institutions within U.S. and globally, e.g. Universidad de Los Andes in
Bogota, Colombia, with Luis Quiroga, Ferney Rodriguez and Roberto Zarama, and
the Chinese University of Hong Kong with Pak Ming Hui. Until summer 2007,
Neil was Professor of Physics at Oxford University (U.K.), having first joined
the faculty in 1992.

Examples of current projects within his group are:

- Social Complexity: Spatio-temporal patterns in human conflict. Contagion in financial markets. Group dynamics in online games.
- Biological Complexity: Nutrient networks in cancer tumours. Quorum sensing. Analysis of viruses spreading in communities, either in the real world or online. Evolution of human disease.
- Physical Complexity: Optically-induced quantum entanglement in nanostructures. Quantum phase transitions in optically-driven nanostructure systems.

Neil did his BA at Cambridge University (U.K.) and PhD at Harvard University as a Kennedy Scholar. He has published more than 200 research articles in international journals, and has published two books: "Financial Market Complexity" (Oxford University Press, 2003) and "Simply Complexity: A Clear Guide to Complexity Theory" (Oneworld Publishing, 2009). He is joint Series Editor for the book series "Complex Systems and Inter- disciplinary Science" by World Scientific Press, and is the Physics Section Editor for the journal "Advances in Complex Systems". He is Associate Editor for "Journal of Economic Interaction and Coordination", and is an Editorial Board member of "Journal of Computational Science". He previously served as an editor of "International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Finance". He was one of the founders of CABDyN (Complex Agent-Based Dynamical Systems) which is Oxford University's interdisciplinary research center in Complexity Science, and he co-directed CABDyN until leaving for Miami in 2007. He continues to be a member of the CABDyN International Advisory Board at Oxford University. He also co-directed Oxford University's interdisciplinary research center in financial complexity (OCCF).
