Complex Systems Summer School 2015

I received my PhD in Physics from University of Zaragoza (Spain). My work there was focused on statistical seismicity, developing reduced complexity models, which tried to capture the main characteristics of natural seismicity. Currently, I am a postdoctoral associate at the University of Minnesota. My research here has been focused on hydrology and Earth Surface Processes with a special emphasis on connectivity and network theory. If I had to summarize the main focus of my research in one question, it would be the following: How much information related to the physical processes that have driven the evolution of landscapes is encoded in their current connectivity? To try to answer that question, I have been working on the applicability of different concepts of complexity and graph theory to better understand those natural systems.
