Leonhard Horstmeyer was a faculty member of the Complexity Science Hub Vienna from Jan 2017 to Feb 2019. Before that, he has written his PhD thesis on the dimensional reduction of smooth dynamical systems under the supervision of Professor Jost at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences. Previously he studied at Imperial College London and obtained a master in theoretical and mathematical physics from the LMU and TU Munich and a master in mathematics from the University of Cambridge.
Leo works on coarse grained descriptions of stochastic network dynamical systems with a focus on precursors of critical transitions. He also investigates moment closure techniques and closure measures for the dimensional reduction of stochastic dynamical systems.
