Yamir Moreno

Fellow - 2013

University of Zaragoza, Spain

Dr. Moreno received the undergraduate and Master degrees in Physics from the University of Havana (1993 and 1996, respectively) and a Ph. D in Theoretical Physics from the University of Zaragoza, Spain, in 2000. Soon afterwards, he joined the Condensed Matter Section of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy as a research fellow. In February 2003, he returned to the University of Zaragoza, first as a research fellow and later holding a Senior Ramon y Cajal research position at the Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems, BIFI, of the same University. Dr. Moreno is currently a tenured Associate Research Professor, the Scientific Secretary of BIFI, and Member of the Board and Steering Committees of the Institute. Additionally, he is heading the Complex Systems and Networks Lab since it was created in 2003.

Dr. Moreno’s background is mainly in statistical physics and in the physics of complex systems. He has worked on different subjects such as non-equilibrium systems, self-organization, nonlinear dynamical systems, mathematical biology, computer simulation techniques, fracture and seismology and the structure and dynamics of complex networks in several fields of science, including the study of the interplay between structure and function in biological, technological and social networks, epidemic spreading processes, nonlinear dynamical systems coupled to complex structures and the emergence of collective behavior in diverse fields.
