Johannes Jäger is a “natural philosopher”, originally trained as a Drosophila geneticist and mathematical modeller of biological regulatory systems. He was group leader at the CRG Barcelona, was a fellow of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, is the former director of the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI) in Klosterneuburg, Austria, and a visiting scholar at the Center for Systems Biology Dresden. Currently, he is drifting between the Complexity Science Hub Vienna, and the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) in Paris.
Johannes is interested in the evolution of complex regulatory systems and the challenges involved in understanding them. Used to work with flies. Has a flair for the philosophy of biology and projects that combine arts and science. Loves teaching and mentoring. Interested in developing workshops with unusual formats that focus on collaboration and sharing of information between researchers from different fields.
