Complex Systems Institute

The website of our Complex Systems Institute (CSI) at Ghent University has been updated. We are planning activities for 2020, pay us an online visit first!


I am constantly looking for motivated and independent students to develop a Master project, PhD thesis or Post-doc project under my supervision or in co-supervision. I am open to host, support and mentor strong candidates on individual grant applications.

The Flemish Research Foundation (FWO) is the main source of funding in this region of Belgium. Ghent University also provides research funding in a competitive basis. Other funding opportunities may be available depending on profile and research interests, plan well in advance and feel free to contact me to discuss possibilities.

The University of Ghent has annual calls for partnerships with low-income and developing countries to sponsor PhD students. I am happy to discuss collaboration opportunities in the broad area of complex systems, network science, econophysics, and data science. Click here for more info!

I work in interdisciplinary topics and with collaborators from multiple disciplines. I thus welcome students from diverse backgrounds with quantitative training such as physics, economics, computer sciences, applied math, engineering, ecology, medical sciences, etc...
