Dan Braha is a Full Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. He is also an affiliate of the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI) in Cambridge, MA. Prior to that he was a Visiting Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a researcher at Boston University. Professor Braha has published extensively in various prestigious journals, including three books (all with Springer).
The most recent book is on the emerging science of Complex Engineered Systems. He was the editor of several special journal issues, served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions, as well as a member of the Editorial Board of various leading journals. He has also served on executive committees including the International Conference on Complex Systems (ICCS), and as chair at a number of international conferences.
Professor Braha has advanced the area of Complex Systems by introducing methodologies for understanding and improving the design, implementation, and dynamics of Complex Socio-Engineered Systems as well as exploring the interplay between natural and large-scale human-made systems. This research mainly focuses on understanding the functionality, dynamics, robustness, and fragility of large-scale systems. Much of his recent research is in the area of Social Networks in general, and Dynamic Social Networks in particular.
