The Applied Complexity Group (ACG), directed by Professor Roland Bouffanais, conducts interdisciplinary research at the interface between Complexity Science and Engineering Design.
Our research involves a synergistic combination of theoretical and computational developments, with real-life experimental validations.
We foster cross-disciplinary exploration to promote innovative engineering designs and to facilitate the advancement of scientific know-how towards applications. We maintain a constructive and open dialogue between science, industry and society.
Our team members hail from various fields and have expertise in a vast range of disciplines – including physics, hydrodynamics, control theory, network science, robotics, machine learning, and engineering design.
A significant part of our funding comes from industry collaborations, with local industry or government agencies (Defense Science Organization, URA, HDB, MND), as well as multi-national engineering companies (e.g., Airbus, EDF, Thales, etc.).
