Anxo Sánchez received his PhD in Theoretical Physics (with distinction) from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain, in 1991. He then went on to a postdoctoral stay at Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA, as a Fulbright fellow. Currently, he is full professor of Applied Mathematics at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, where he founded the Interdisciplinary Group in Complex Systems (GISC) in 1996. He is also a a researcher and member of the Scientific Committee of the Institute UC3M-BS for Financial Big Data, and an associate researcher with BIFI, a research institute of Universidad de Zaragoza.
He has co-authored more than 160 papers in prestigious international journals, receiving more than 3900 citations (h=35, March 2017), and he has been an invited speaker at about 50 national and international conferences. His research deals mostly with the applications of the physics and mathematics of complex systems to social and biological sciences, and has contributed to the advancement of different fields ranging from economics to condensed matter physics through ecology and theoretical computer science. He is or has been the PI of 19 projects, with funding from the EU Commission, the Spanish government, the Madrid regional government, NATO, ESF, and Fundación BBVA, and he has also collaborated with the oil & gas company Repsol and with the consulting company everis. He is a member of the Editorial Boards of Scientific Reports and Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment. He is a reviewer for ERC, EU, several national funding agencies, and funding agencies from other countries (EPSRC, NWO, FWO, FONDECYT, FONCYT, etc.), and he reviews manuscripts for Nature, Nature Communications PNAS, Physical Review Letters, Journal of the Royal Society Interface and up to more than 20 JCR journals.
