Roger Cremades
Dr. Roger Cremades is a complex systems scientist and heterodox global change economist integrating human-Earth interactions across systems and scales into modular quantitative tools, e.g. connecting drought risks in cities with land use at the river basin scale. Roger coordinated research and co-production projects above €1M, and published in top journal like PNAS, Nature Climate Change, and Nature Geoscience. Roger is elected member of the Council of the Complex Systems Society (2019-2022) and co-Chair of the Development Team of the Finance and Economics Knowledge-Action Network of Future Earth (2020-2022). Roger is known for applying complexity methods such as networks, cellular automata, or adaptive cycles, to problems usually explored with ideas of the XIX century, thus producing innovative work about socio-economic tipping points, the dynamics of social norms, the sustainability frontiers of cities, the economics of the water-energy-land nexus, and climate risk insurances, i.a.
