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‚Äôs Robotics Outreach Programme and the EU ASSYST project, a Complex Systems coordination Support Action project. I currently research information extraction and data mining. Jane Bromley

Katerina 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. Theodore Zamenopoulos
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 project.
