Jelena is a physicist working in Game Theory, Complex Networks and Complex systems in general. She is specialized in running large scale game theory experiment with human subjects, however her work is very interdisciplinary ranging from physics, neuroscience to economy and archaeology. She is working at Vrije Universiteit Brussel and previously she was a
postdoc at Imperial College London. She did her PhD at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. She has extensive experience in public speaking and science communication, which includes participating in FameLab, leading physics department at Petnica Science Centre, Serbia, organizing Science Festival in Belgrade, Serbia and numerous other public talks and trainings. During the summer of 2016 she worked at Summer School of Complex Systems, organized by Santa Fe Institute, USA as a project liaison, supervising student’s projects.
José Javier Ramasco
José Javier finished the BSc and the MSc in Physics by the University of Cantabria locatedin Santander, Spain, in 1997 and the PhD, by the same
university, in 2002. During that period, I worked in the Statistical Physics group of IFCA .
After the PhD, he moved a little: A first postdoc in Oporto (Portugal) at the Centro de Fisica do Porto, a center belonging to the University of Porto, and a second one in Atlanta (Georgia, USA) in Stefan Boettcher’s group at the Physics Department of Emory University. Then, for five years, he has been a research scientist at the ISI Foundation in Turin, Italy. Nowadays, he is a Distinguished Reseacher at IFISC (Insitute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems) in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, associated to the Spanish National Research Council CSIC.
Mathematician by formation, she spent most of her life developing software. She started collaborating with the creation of an open source game engine and framework in Tragnarion Studios. Later on, she moved to GridSystems and got involved in the development of an open source grid middleware. Six years ago, she started workin
at IFISC (CSIC-UIB), a research institute. She started working on a grid project, but she got interested in data mining and now she is a data specialist working on human mobility.
