Bernat Corominas-Murtra obtained the degree in Physics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, in a graduate program centered on Theoretical Physics. He then obtained the degree in Linguistics at the Universitat de Barcelona, in a program focused on Logics and Theoretical Syntax. He is Master degree in Mathematics for the same University, in the framework of a program centered on Dynamical Systems and Stochastic processes. His PhD Thesis, entitled "An unified approach to the emergence of complex communication" was advised by Ricard Solé (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), within the Doctorate Program of the Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona.
He started his professional research activity at the ICREA-Complex Systems Lab (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), headed by Professor Ricard Sole, working within the "ECAgents" project (funded by the EU) and the "Emergence of Complexity in Tinkered Networks" (funded by the James and Catherine McDonnell Foundation). He has collaborated with several research instituions, among them; the Fundamental Center for Living Technology (University of Southern Denmark) the Information and Autonomous Systems Research Group (University of the Basque Country) or the Center for Theoretical Linguistics (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona). He has also actively contributed to the "Mesomorph" project, the "ComplexDys" project and the NWO project "Dependency in Universal Grammar".
Now he is developing his research activity at the Section for Complex Systems Research (Medical University of Vienna), leaded by Professor Stefan Thurner within the Austrian Science Fund FWF Project P23378. His current activity goes from the exploration of the behavior of artificial societies to the foundations of complexity and statistical mechanics, with several active collaborations on the fields of artificial life and logics of human language.
Bernat Corominas-Murtra has published around 20 peer-reviewed papers, spanning different areas of research, from information theory to complex networks or the structure and logics of human language. Beyond this, he enjoys hiking, reading or having passionate conversations about the foundations of set theory or about literature.
