Brief Biography
Albert-Laszlo Barabasi is the Distinguished University Professor of Physics
at Northeastern University, where he directs the Center for Complex Network
Research. He is also a member of the Center for Cancer Systems Biology at
the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard University. Born in Transylvania,
and educated in Bucharest and Budapest, he received a Ph.D. in Physics in
1994 from Boston University. After a year at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
he joined Notre Dame in 1995. His research has lead to the discovery and
understanding of scale-free networks, capturing the structure of many
complex networks in technology and nature, from the World Wide Web to the
cell. His current research at Northeastern University, focuses on applying
the concepts developed by his group for characterizing the topology of the
www and the Internet to uncovering the structural and topological properties
of complex metabolic and genetic networks. He is a Fellow of the American
Physical Society, an external member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences,
and a foreign member of Academia Europeae. He is the recipient of the 2005
FEBS Annual Award for Systems Biology and the 2006 van Neuman Prize for
Computer Science. His recent general audience book entitled Linked: The New
Science of Networks (Perseus, 2002) is currently available in 12 languages.
