The emergence of complexity is one of the most fascinating phenomena of nature. From human language to stem cell biology, biological evolution or the development of technology, the emergence of complex order seems to defy the laws of physics. As a researcher I try to disentangle small bits of this formidable problem, following an approach that integrates non equilibrium physics, stochastic processes, complex networks and information theory. I addressed specific problems, such as the nature of hierarchy, the emergence of scaling or the properties of systems with non-stable phase spaces.

Currently I develop my research activity at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria within the research group leaded by Edouard Hanezzo exploring the potential existence physical principles underlying stem cell dynamics. In parallel, I try to find new general forms of Information Theory to address the conceptual challenges imposed by living systems.
