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. Presently, he is head of FiEstIn.


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.


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.


Fabiana Laguna studies problems of social and biological origin, using tools from physics and mathematics. She is particularly interested in ecological systems, epidemics propagation, and mechanisms of opinion formation and wealth distribution. She holds a Ph. D. in Physics, is independent researcher of CONICET, and teaches at Universidad Nacional de Río Negro.


Karina Laneri studies spatio-temporal population dynamics of infectious diseases, forest fire propagation, and animal movement. Combining mathematical models with computer simulations and statistical inference, she aims to understand the key mechanisms underlying observations. Her motivation comes mainly from interdisciplinary work, going out to the field with biologists and engineers, programming together with computer scientists or creating mathematical and statistical models. She holds a Ph. D. in Physics and is adjunct researcher of CONICET.


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


Luis G. Moyano develops research lines that lie at the intersection of physics and machine learning. Among his areas of interest are representation learning of complex networks, with applications to social and biological networks, as well as machine learning methods applied to numerical simulations, both in physics and in biology. He holds a Ph. D. in Physics and is adjunct researcher of CONICET.


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.


Sebastián Zudaire is doctoral fellow of ANPCyT and carries on his Ph. D. thesis in Engineering Sciences on mission planning of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) under the direction of Drs. Sebastián Uchitel (University of Buenos Aires) and Marcelo Kuperman.
