Rui A. P. Perdigão is chair professor in Physics of Complex Systems, 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), Frontiers in Physics (associate editor in Interdisciplinary Physics), and heads interdisciplinary research alliances across the complex system sciences and technologies.
Overall, he promotes, leads and conducts fundamental research in information physics, non-linear dynamics and analytics, coevolutionary complexity and predictability, 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 and security of our societies and theatres of operation across natural and technical environments.
