Prof. Christian Beck
I am Head of the
newly created Centre for Complex Systems (union of old DSSP and CS group)
at Queen Mary.
For 6 years (2017-2022) I was Chair of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division of the European Physical Society (EPS).
In 2023 I was elected to the Executive Committee of EPS. This is the highest gremium of EPS working directly with the EPS president.
From 2021-2023 I was Alan Turing Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute.
I am also a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
I am on the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports, and currently I am also an Advisory Editor of Physica A and on the Editoral Board of the journal Entropy.

Some further topics I am interested in:
--- Coupled Map Lattices and Spatio-Temporal Chaos
---Statistics of Lagrangian quantum turbulence
---Thermodynamic Formalism of Dynamical Systems
--- Generalized statistical mechanics methods for complex systems
--- environmental time series, air pollution statistics, traffic delay statistics
--- Brownian motion, Langevin processes, nonequilibrium situations
--- Fully Developed Turbulence
---Stochastic processes on networks
--- Chaotic scalar fields, dynamical models of vacuum fluctuations
--- Possible measurable effects of dark energy and dark matter in superconducting devices
---dark matter axions
---extreme event statistics
---stochastic volatility in mathematical finance
---(anomalous) diffusion of biomolecules in living cells
---water quality in rivers

My 1st book (with F. Schloegl, Cambridge University Press, 1993)
(paperback edition 1995)
My 2nd book (World Scientific, 2002)
Here you can see it in more detail.
This has appeared in the Advanced Series in Nonlinear Dynamics of World Scientific.
Another book of which I am a co-editor (World Scientific, 2005) is on Complexity,
Metastability, and Nonextensive Methods.
As a previous chairman (2017-2022) of the EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division I recommend that you submit the occasional paper to EPL
I am also an Advisory Editor of
PHYSICA A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications.
