University of Bristol & CSH External Faculty

Karoline Wiesner is Associate Professor in complexity sciences at the University of Bristol. She obtained a PhD in physics from Uppsala University in 2004.


Interested in the sciences of complexity, Karoline began to work on information theoretic representations of complex systems as a PostDoc at the Santa Fe Institute (USA) and the University of California, Davis. Her work centered around information theoretic representations of quantum dynamical systems. She joined the School of Mathematics at Bristol as Assistant Professor in 2007.


Karoline’s current research focuses on Shannon’s mathematical theory of communication applied to complex systems. Application areas include proteins, glass formers, and stem cells. Her research includes work on the mathematical and philosophical foundations of complex systems.
