I am a Professor of Applied Mathematics in the School of Mathematical Sciences
at Queen Mary, University of London.

My research interests are in Complex Systems, Nonlinear Dynamics, Stochastic Processes, and Statistical Physics, including mathematical modelling of real-world systems and interdisciplinary applications.
Recent highlights of my research include understanding the frequency dynamics of
power grids, sustainable energy systems, and stochastic analysis of air pollution time series.
I am also interested in more fundamental types of questions, such as what is dark matter and how can it be potentially detected: axionic dark matter paper in PRL.

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.

In 2022 I got a grant from QMUL/Research England (50K) on policy impact research.
With part of the money we organized a 2-day workshop on policy impact for air pollution statistics and water quality monitoring 13-14 June 2022:
