Guillermo Abramson studies complex systems at the boundary between physics and biology. His interests comprise dynamical systems, the formation of spatiotemporal structures, and the emergence of order in ecological systems. In particular, he is interested in mathematical aspects of epidemic propagation. He has a Ph. D. in Physics, is an independent researcher of CONICET, and teaches at Instituto Balseiro. As an amateur astronomer, he is also involved in the divulgation of astronomy.


Sebastián Bouzat studies motion and propagation phenomena in physical and biological systems, especially, active transport in cell cytoplasm, pedestrian motion, and dynamics of granular media. He is also interested in processes of biological and cultural evolution. He has a Ph. D. in Physics, and he is independent researcher of CONICET and associate professor at Universidad Nacional de Río Negro.


The research work of Adrián A. Budini is focused on open quantum systems (dissipation and decoherence), quantum optics (fluorescence, single-molecule spectroscopy, quantum jumps, stastistics of photon counting), and classical stochastic processes (Langevin equations). His main contributions consist of the formulation and application of non-Markovian model dynamics to those areas. He bears a Ph. D. in Physics from the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (2003), and is assistant researcher of CONICET.


Octavio Cabrera Morrone is a doctoral fellow of CONICET and carries on his Ph. D. thesis in Engineering Sciences on passive radars under the direction of Dr. Damián Zanette.


Manuel O. Cáceres studies transport processes in quantum and classical heterogeneous systems, analyzing violations to the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. He also studies passive scalar classical fluids in turbulent media, asymptotic mathematical behaviour of positive nonsymmetric random matrices, and statistical properties of nonlinear systems perturbed by arbitrary noise. He has a Ph. D. in Physics, and he is reasearcher of CONEA, principal researcher of CONICET, and associate professor of Instituto Balseiro.


Carolina Daza Caro is a postdoc fellow of CONICET, and works on mathematical models for biological populations.


Laila Kazimierski is a doctoral fellow of CONICET and carries on her thesis on ecological modeling under the direction of Drs. Guillermo Abramson and Marcelo Kuperman.


Marcelo Kuperman does interdisciplinary research, linking physics and mathematics with biology and social sciences. He is interested in epidemiological phenomena, culture propagation, microeconomic behaviour, game theory, and structure formation and propagation, involving complex networks and nonlinear differential equations. He has a Ph. D. in Physics, is independent researcher of CONICET, and teaches at Instituto Balseiro. Presently, he is head of FiEstIn.


Fabiana Laguna studies problems of social and biological origin, using tools from physics and mathematics. She is particularly interested in ecological systems and opinion formation. She also carries on a reseach line oriented to modelling and numerical simulation of some material science systems. She holds a Ph. D. in Physics, and she is independent researcher of CONICET.


Karina Laneri studies population dynamics by dynamical models, individual based models and complex networks, in order to understand the key mechanisms underlying observations. She is currently applying statistical inference methodologies developed for partially observed stochastic processes, combining temporal series data with computer simulations, to study the relationship between climate and malaria epidemics. She is also interested in extreme statistics. She holds a Ph. D. in Physics, and she is adjunct researcher of CONICET.


Isaías McHardy is a doctoral fellow of CONICET and carries on his Ph. D. thesis on disordered systems under the direction of Dr. Manuel Cáceres.


Damián H. Zanette studies synchronization processes in large populations of interacting dynamical systems, and analyzes models of biological and social phenomena, such as epidemic propagation and opinion formation, on networks and other complex structures. He is also interested in the statistical properties of language and music. He holds a Ph. D. in Physics, and he is principal researcher of CONICET and associate professor of Instituto Balseiro.
