About me

My name is Georg Jäger. After obtaining my PhD in physics in 2015 I am now a postdoc in the Systems Sciences group of Professor Manfred Füllsack at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz. My main research interest is the simulation and modelling of complex systems in various fields.


  • Complex Systems
  • Agent-based Modeling
  • Equation-based Modeling
  • Systems Sciences
  • Networks
  • Machine Learning
  • Theorethical and Computational Physics
