Understanding Complex Systems
Prof Wiesner’s research is concerned with shaping the tools, from information theory and other areas of applied mathematics, to study the dynamics of natural and social complex systems.
The research is rooted in the philosophy of science and complexity. A precise definition of terms such as self-organisation, emergence, and robustness make much of the research transferable to the social sciences.

The research group “Optoelectronics of Disordered Semiconductors” of Prof. Dr. Safa Shoaee is interested in understanding and developing low cost, large area environmentally benign photovoltaic technologies. Therefore the team is studying disordered carbon-based semiconductors, in particular organic semiconductors, to find out how these materials, electrically and optically perform, and which of their properties influence how efficiently they convert light energy into electrical energy.
