Luis Cisneros’ interests are aimed at studying the mechanisms of emergence of collective behavior in complex systems. He is fascinated with the concept of emergence and learning how information dynamics and interaction between parts of a system can lead to collective self-organization. In his scientific career, Luis has studied this subject in different classes of systems using different angles going from theoretical, to computational to data-driven approaches. He started as a theoretical physicist then moved into more applied topics of nonlinear dynamics and complexity. In particular, his work has been focused in looking at cancer as a breakdown of the multicellular structure.
