Professor Celso Grebogi is the Sixth Century Chair in Nonlinear and Complex systems at the University of Aberdeen, UK. He is also the Founder and Director of the Institute for Complex Systems and Mathematical Biology and the Scientific Member of the Max-Planck-Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems. He is a leading expert in chaotic dynamics. He was previously with the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, as Professor of Physics, and, before that, with the University of Maryland as Professor of Mathematics. Professor Grebogi’s research in chaotic dynamical systems involves bridging the gap between abstract concepts, on the one hand, and the scientific disciplines, and engineering, medical and social fields where the applications occur, on the other hand. His research in systems biology integrates mathematical developments with biological experiments. He has made an enormous international impact with his seminal work in the area of chaotic control; he was awarded the Thomson Reuters Citation Laureate for this work, and it was also selected by the American Physical Society as a milestone in the last 50 years. His scientific accomplishments include over 400 publications and numerous prizes including multiple Doctor Honoris Causa, the Senior Humboldt Prize, and Toshiba Chair as a World-renown Scholar. He is Fellow at various scientific societies, including the Royal Society of Edinburgh, The World Academy of Sciences, Brazilian academy of Sciences. He has 21,000 citations and h-index = 67 in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science (31,000 citations and h-index = 81 in Google Scholar).
