Marcel Ausloos is a Belgian engineer (U. Liege, 1967). He turned toward theoretical studies of materials and condensed matter for his M.Sc. (Brown U., 1970) and toward statistical physics for his Ph. D. (Temple U., 1973)
He has much contributed to statistical mechanics theory through studying various disordered systems, which can be described along fractal and multi-fractal ideas. He has been much interested in describing non-linear and out-of-equilibrium phenomena, in classical and so called exotic physics, through mathematical formalisms and simulation works. His work in econo-physics and socio-physics is widely respected.
He has of the order of 600 publications, in peer review journals and as peer review published communications at scientific meetings, with more than 300 different coauthors; he has edited 9 books, organized many international conferences, directed many graduate student theses, presented many scientific contributions at meetings or gave seminars, and taught in many "summer/winter schools". He is or has been a member of the editorial board of various journals, and very often chosen as a reviewer. His Hirsch index is greater than 40.
He has a widely open interest in interdisciplinary research and has a well known track for research project management or leadership. He has been taken as an expert for many projects by various financially granting bodies, in Europe and USA, and been recognized through several honoring distinctions
