Dr Izaak Neri

Izaak Neri received a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the Catholic University of Leuven in 2010. He held post-doctoral positions at the University of Montpellier, the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, and the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems. 

Weclome to my website!   Here you can find out more about my research in statistical physics.

In recent years, my research has focused on complex systems theory and nonequilibrium thermodynamics. 

Examples of complex systems are neural networks, ecosystems, or complex fluids such as the cytoplasm.  These systems consist of many constituents that interact through a large and complex interaction network.  I am developing mathematical methods to determine how networks structure affects the dynamical properties of complex systems.  

Nonequilibirum thermodynamics deals with small systems that are far from thermal equilibrium, such as, molecular motors or electronic ciruits.  I am using stohastic processes theory to derive universal tradeoff relations between dissipation, speed, and fluctuations in nonequilibrium systems.
