Prof. Gyorgy Korniss received his Diploma (M.S.) in Physics at Eotvos University, Budapest in 1993 and his Ph.D. in Physics at Virginia Tech in 1997. His research background is statistical physics and interacting and agent-based systems. He was a postdoctoral research associate at the Supercomputer Computations Research Institute, Florida State University between 1997-2000. He has been in the Department Physics at RPI since 2000, where he has been a Professor since 2012. He authored and co-authored over 100 mostly interdisciplinary publications, including papers in Science, Physical Review Letters, Journal of Theoretical Biology, Scientific Reports, and Chaos. He is an Editorial Board member of Fluctuation and Noise Letters and Scientific Reports. His current research focuses on transport, flow, and cascading failures in complex networks; synchronization, coordination, and extreme events in coupled stochastic systems; and opinion dynamics and influencing in social networks.
