Christian von Ferber

Coventry University

Christian von Ferber was born on May 15, 1961 in G ö ttingen, Germany. He completed his PhD at the University of Essen in 1993. His subsequent research was performed in several leading scientific centers, including Tel Aviv University, as a Fellow at the Minerva Foundation, and the universities of D ü sseldorf and Freiburg. He was also a Guest Professor at the University of Linz and a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Krakow. In 2003 he earned his Habilitation (Venia Legendi in Physics) at the University of Freiburg and now he holds a privatdozent position in the university of D usseldorf. Since 2006 he has worked at ̈ the Applied Mathematics Research Centre in Coventry University (UK), where now he holds a position as a reader. The scientific interests of Christian mainly concern soft matter physics and complex systems. Subjects of his analyses range from polymers, colloids and disordered magnets to transportation networks.

Taras Yavors'kii

Coventry University

Taras Yavors'kii studied physics at and earned PhD from National University of Lviv, Ukraine, where he was developing quantitative theory of critical phenomena in phi-4 field theories with complex symmetry order parameters. He then worked as a research associate and a post-doctoral fellow at Universities in Hanover (Germany), Waterloo (Canada), Mainz (Germany) studying quantum and classical spin models on highly geometrically frustrated lattices. He was also employed as a consultant on high-performance GPU computing in molecular dynamics at the University of Waterloo. In 2013, he was appointed a Lecturerer in Mathematics at Coventry University. He is an author of over 20 publications in peer-reviewed international professional journals garnering over 400 references to his work, including in journals “Science” and “Nature”.
