Thompson FRS (email@example.com)
Director, Professor of Nonlinear Dynamics
Michael was awarded PhD and ScD degrees at Cambridge, and was elected
FRS in 1985. He has written four books on nonlinear bifurcation
phenomena, and is the editor of the Philosophical Transactions
A of the Royal Society of London.
Manager, Professor in Nonlinear Dynamics.
Steve has M.Sc and Ph.D degrees in applied mathematics. He is the
Manager of the Centre, and also the Course Director for the MSc
in Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos.
Professor of Nonlinear Systems
Jaroslav has a BA and PhD in mathematics. He joined the Centre
from the GEC Hirst Research Centre and is Course Director for the
MRes in Biological Complexity run by CoMPLEX.
He has just retired as editor of the journal
Dynamics and Stability of Systems.
Senior Research Fellow
Steve has an MSc. in applied maths, and a D.Phil. from Oxford for
which he modelled atmospheric dynamics. With Prof. A. Warner of
the UCL Anatomy Department, and Jaroslav
Stark he is now researching the electrical and chemical properties
of living cells.
van der Heijden (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Royal Society University Research Fellow
Gert has a degree in theoretical physics, and a Ph.D. in maths,
both from the University of Utrecht. He is working on localised
buckling in structural mechanics and on bifurcation of homoclinic
orbits in dynamical systems in general.
Andrew has a background in theoretical physics. He is working jointly
with Prof. R. Callard at the Institute of Child Health and Jaroslav
Stark on cytokine
Sebastien has a PhD in mathematical physics from the University
of Paris VI. He works with Michael Thompson and Gert van der Heijden
on localisation in twisted rods and on the dynamics of tops, supported
by an EPSRC grant.
