Rui A. P. Perdigão is chair professor in Physics of Complex Systems and Climate Dynamics, interuniversity chair in Fluid Dynamical Systems, executive and professorial chair of the Meteoceanics Institute for Complex System Science (MICSS) and director of the associated Doctoral School, where he heads a large ecclectic set of international academic and research programs. He also introduced and coordinates Complex System Dynamics & Interdisciplinary Data Analytics and Model Design, both at MICSS Doctoral School and at the University of Lisbon. Rui Perdigão serves as Editor in international scientific journals including the EGU journal Earth System Dynamics (ESD) and has invited positions at the Institute of Telecommunications (Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies), the Institute of Social Sciences (Doctoral Program on Climate Change and Sustainable Development Policies), and the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes, at the University of Lisbon.
Overall, he promotes, leads and conducts fundamental research in information physics, coevolutionary complexity, and causality, ranging from quantum to cosmological scales passing through the intricacies of coevolutionary multi domain multiscale complexity across the geophysical and socio-environmental dynamics in the earth system.
His theoretical and methodological breakthroughs then come into down-to-earth use in the development of advanced analytics, modelling and decision support frameworks for the institutions entrusted with the protection of our society and the environment. More recently (2020), Rui Perdigão was elected corresponding member of the prestigious Academy of Sciences in Lisbon, joining the section of Physics.
