Short CV

Bachelor in Physics and Linguistics, Msc in Mathematics, Bernat Corominas-Murtra got the Phd in 2011 with Ricard Solé as advisor at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. In 2012 moved to Vienna as a postdoc at the Medical University of Vienna, Section for Complex Systems and, from 2016 to 2018, he was also associate researcher at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Before being appointed associate professor at University of Graz, he stayed as postdoc at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria, centering his research activity towards theoretical biology and biophysics. Bernat Corominas-Murtra has published papers in a wide range of disciplines related to statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium systems, with special attention to biophysics, network theory and information theory. His recent activity at the University of Graz has been focused on the theoretical exploration of the emergence of complexity through different problems related to the dynamics of stem cells and embryo morphogenesis.
