Prof Henrik Jeldtoft Jensen

Why do we do science? For the same reason as Glenn Gould plays piano: The purpose of art is not the release of a momentary ejection of adrenaline but rather the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder. Glenn Gould There are no such things as applied sciences, only applications of science. Louis Pasteur We shall not cease frome exploration And the end of all our exploration Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time.

Dr Tim Evans

Tim Evans is a Senior Lecturer (equivalent to an associate professor), part of the Complexity and Networks programme at Imperial and a member of the Theoretical Physics group. I did my first degree in Natural Sciences (Physics) at Cambridge followed by a PhD here at Imperial, supervised by Ray Rivers. I then spent time as a researcher at the University of Alberta in Edmonton Canada, followed by research positions back here at Imperial, in part as a Royal Society University Research Fellow. Tim Evans is currently giving a course on Complexity and Networks to final year Physics students.  Previously he has given undergraduate and masters courses in Group Theory, Unification and Quantum Theory of Matter (superfluids and superconductors including quantum field theory approaches).  He is  currently writing a book on Group theory with Prof. Dimitri Vvedensky. Tim Evans also runs numerous poplar and highly successful projects with final year students, which has produced numerous publications with student coauthors.

Dr Gunnar Pruessner

Dr Pruessner works in the field of non-equilibrium physics and its applications in biological and man-made systems, considering mostly asymptotic behaviour, i.e. phenomena on large length and time scales. Applications range from surface and crystalline growth to scaling in ecotones. He applies field theoretical techniques extensively, as well as large scale numerics. The main focus of his research is complexity and self-organised criticality (SOC) with the main objective to bring to bear the most succesful technique of statistical mechanics, namely renormalised field theory. He was able to relate the largest universality class in SOC to the well studied quenched Edwards-Wilkinson equation, establishing rigorously for the first time an intimate link between traditional non-equilibrium critical phenomena and SOC. Very extensive computer simulations of the most robust and solid model in SOC, the Manna Model, provide further evidence for universality and the existence of an epsilon expansion. In 2012 he has completed a 500 page monograph on SOC to be published by Cambridge University Press. In 2009 he was chosen an outstanding referee for Physical Review and Physical Review Letters by the...
