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.   Currently, he is based in the Disordered Systems Group of the Mathematics Department of King's College London (see here).

Welcome to my website!  

As a statistical physicist, I use stochastic processes and probability theory to study large, complex systems and small, fluctuating systems.   

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 specifically interested in how network structure and heterogeneity affects the dynamics of complex systems, and to this aim I extend methods for systems with all-to-all interactions, which are much better understood, to the setup of networked systems.  

Examples of small systems are proteins, colloidal particles, or living cells.  I use stochastic processes to study the nonequilibrium fluctuations in small systems, and decision-making processes in noisy environments.
