short biographies and contact details of hypernetwork scientists
Jeffrey Johnson is
Professor of Complexity Science and Design at the Open University, UK.
He has wide research interests including: complex systems,
simulation, robotics, hypernetworks, agent-based modelling,
non-equilibrium social science and policy
applications of complex systems.
|Jane Bromley Research fellow at the Open University UK. My background is in physics - specifically optics and visual psychophysics. I have carried out research on visual dysfunction and neural networks for human perception tasks. This was followed by a stint in project management (home and industry) then reintegration into research via the Open University’s Robotics Outreach Programme and the EU ASSYST project, a Complex Systems coordination Support Action project. I currently research information extraction and data mining.|
M. S. Rodrigues
is Research Assistant at The Open University, United Kingdom, UK.
My research interests include: Hypernetworks, Network Science, Social Networks, Synchronization Phenomena, Symmetry, Community Detection, Cellular Automata, Emergence and Stigmergy.
Alexiou Lecturer in Design
having joined the OU as research fellow in 2004. Her design background and
professional experience is in architecture. Her research is in the area
of design theory and methods (including design cognition, collaborative
design, learning, creativity, and social aspects of design). She has a
special interest on the relationship between complexity science and
design, and the exchange of theories and methodologies between the two. She is also interested in
design computing, artificial
intelligence, simulation, the development of design and planning
support systems and the investigation of the relationship between space
and human behaviour.
|Theodore Zamenopoulos Lecturer in Design applies complexity theory and methods in design research and practice. He has been Research Fellow on European and UK funded research projects related to the theme of complexity and design. He is a professionally qualified architect and has practiced architecture in Greece. His research lies in the areas of design theory, design cognition, social theory of design, design computing, computer-aided design, design learning, complexity research methods, mathematics, and artificial intelligence. He conducts empirical as well as mathematical and computational studies on the neurological, cognitive and social level of design activity, and technologies to support design and design learning. He also interested in the built environment, focussing on design computing, and methods for generating spatial configurations.|
|Cristian Jimenez-Romero is a PhD
student in the Centre for Complexity
and Design. He worked as a professional programmer for Nokia-Siemens
before joining the OU. He is interested in the design of peer marking
systems and the development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and is working within the Etoile
|Graham P Chapman is Etoile
Visiting Professor in the Centre and Professor Emertius in Geography at
Lancaster University. His research interests include Quantitative
systems theory, Combinatorial qualitative data analysis,
Geopolitics (particularly relating to South Asia and to Water), the
critical historical cartography of water and environment in
Bengal, also media studies and gaming simulation (Green
Revolution Game, Africulture and Exaction).
