### Biography

James Gleeson holds a BSc in Mathematical Science and an MSc in Mathematical Physics from University College Dublin. In 1999 he completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics at Caltech. He has lectured at Arizona State University and at University College Cork, and since 2007 has held a Chair in Industrial and Applied Mathematics at the University of Limerick.

James' research interests are in mathematical modelling of stochastic dynamics, with a particular focus on complex systems and networks. He is a SEES co-PI, has held three Principal Investigator awards from Science Foundation Ireland, and is a co-PI on a Future and Emerging Technologies project funded by the European Commission's FP7. James is co-director of MACSI, the Mathematics Applications Consortium for Science and Industry (http://www.macsi.ul.ie/). MACSI researchers develop and apply mathematical techniques to assist collaborators from science and industry in solving real-world problems.

### Research Interests

My group works on mathematical models for stochastic dynamics, particularly on complex networks. As co-director of MACSI, I am also interested in applying mathematical tools and techniques to solving real-world problems, in collaboration with partners from industry, science and engineering. Our research is funded by Science Foundation Ireland and, as part of the PLEXMATH project, by the FET-Proactive scheme of the European Commission's FP7. My Google Scholar page is here.
