Roger Guimerà


Roger Guimera is ICREA Research Professor of Experimental Sciences and Mathematics at Universitat Rovira i Virgili, in Tarragona, Spain. Roger's research is devoted to the development and application of probabilistic and computational tools for the analysis of complex systems and, particularly, of complex networks. During his career, he has: (i) made methodological contributions to the study of complex networks (e.g. identification of communities and roles, Bayesian network inference, and rigorous model comparison), and (ii) used complex network analysis and network models to gain understanding on specific systems (e.g. social communication and collaboration networks, critical infrastructures such as the air transportation system, and biological systems such as metabolism). These contributions have won him the Erdos-Renyi Prize of the Network Science Society in 2012, and the Young Scientist Award for Socio- and Econophysics of the German Physical Society in 2014.
