Medical University of Vienna & CSH Associate Faculty

Jan Korbel is currently Postdoc at the Section of Science for Complex Systems of the Medical University of Vienna and Associate Faculty researcher at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. He obtained his PhD in Mathematical Physics at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague under the supervision of Petr Jizba.  During his doctoral studies, he spent a year as Research intern at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in the group of Hagen Kleinert. After his graduation, Jan spent a year as Postdoc at the Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in the group of Bo Zheng. He has also gathered experience during the internships at Quirin Bank in Berlin and IBM Watson Research Center in Prague.


Jan is interested in statistical physics of complex systems, econophysics, and information theory. His main research topics are: applications of non-standard entropies in non-equilibrium thermodynamics, financial time series analysis (multifractals, superstatistics, fractional calculus) and applications of information theory in statistical physics and econophysics.
