    Research Interests

    My long-standing research interests are in computer simulations of complex physical systems with a special emphasis on the (equilibrium and non-equilibrium) dynamics of disordered systems, including magnetically disordered systems such as spin glasses. The work I have published in this area and the papers currently under consideration for publication are all in high quality international journals.

    The application of ideas and techniques from statistical physics to novel areas such as econophysics, financial mathematics, sociophysics and complex networks is the underlying theme of my present research interests.

    In the recent past I was awarded 2 research grants to further develop these ideas. One of these grants was awarded (from the Daiwa Foundation) jointly with Dr T Yamano (ICU, Tokyo, Japan) for collaboration on “Applications of spin models to the Japanese financial markets”. The other one was from UKIERI for a Project Formulation Grant to prepare for a major grant submission jointly with colleagues from an eminent institution in India. As a result of the funding, I was able to identify the Saha Institute (Kolkata) as a suitable partner in India.

    In order to facilitate research grant applications and collaborations, I am (or have been) a member of several high profile international research networks (for example, ONCE, ESF COST Action P10 “Physics of Risk” and EPSRC funded Network Plus). 

    I was on the management committee of the ESF action “Physics of Competition” COST MP0801 and a member of the EPSRC Network Plus “Emergence and Physics far from Equilibrium”. Recently, I have been invited to join the national Econophysics Network based at Leicester University.

    In the past I evaluated EU INTAS research proposals as an expert. I’m on the British Council Researcher-Links panel which considers and evaluates research grant applications and also an expert evaluator for EU Horizon 2020 proposals.
