He is the Director of the Institute for  Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems (BIFI), the head of the  Complex Systems and Networks Lab (COSNET) and Professor of Physics at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the Faculty of Sciences, University of Zaragoza. Prof. Moreno is also an External Professor of the Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Austria.

Prof. Moreno is the elected President of the Network Science Society  and was the President of the Complex Systems Society from 2015 to 2018.  His field of research is in the theoretical foundations of complex  systems, which he investigates using tools from mathematics, physics  and network science.  Pro. Moreno is a world expert on disease dynamics, diffusion processes,  mathematical biology, nonlinear dynamical processes and the structure  and dynamics of complex systems. He has published more than 210  scientific papers with a total of 17800+ citations and h-index=54 (ISI  WoK) or 29300+ and 64 (Google Scholar), including the most cited Physics  Reports (Complex Networks and their  applications, Phys. Rep. 424, 175-304 (2006), 9000+ citations).

At  present, Prof. Moreno is a Divisional Associate Editor of Physical  Review Letters, Editor of the New Journal of Physics; Chaos, Solitons  and Fractals; and Journal of Complex Networks; an Academic Editor of PLoS ONE, and a member of the Editorial Boards of Scientific Reports, Applied Network Science, and Frontiers in Physics.
