"Ralph Kenna"

I am a Professor and founding member of the Applied Mathematics Research Centre (AMRC). I obtained a Ph.D. from the Karl-Franzens Universität, Graz, Austria in 1993 and, after posts in the University of Liverpool and Trinity College Dublin settled in Warwickshire where I established one of the UK’s largest statistical physics groups as part of the AMRC at coventry University. I have worked extensively on phase transitions and critical phenomena but also have interests in applications of statistical physics to sociology and humanities. I have been a visiting scientist at statistical physics groups in the Universität Leipzig, Germany, Université de Lorraine, France and the Institute of Condensed Matter Physics in Lviv, Ukraine. Together, these three and AMRC form the L4 Collaboration which hosts the International Doctoral College for the Statistical Physics of Complex Systems. I am a Co-Director of L4.
