Research: I try to understand how natural and man-made systems processes information. I study this ‘natural information processing’ in complex systems by computational modeling and simulation as well as through formal methods. My work is applied to a large variety of disciplines. Recent work has been on the virology and epidemiology of infectious diseases, notably HIV, through Complex Networks. Award: Leading Scientist Award (3.6 M€) (St. Petersburg, Russian Federation, 2010), largest individual scientific award in the world.
