International Society for the Systems Sciences
SIG Chair: Research Towards General Systems Theories, SIG Chair: Systems Philosophy
I am based in the UK, where I am Director of the Centre for Systems Philosophy, and a Visiting Fellow of the Centre for Systems Studies in the University of Hull. Ever since learning about the systems perspective as an engineering student, I have been fascinated by the power and potential of systems science to help us solve complex problems and profound puzzles. In the ISSS I have found a natural home in a community dedicated to the advancement of systems science and its application to build a better world. I was President of the ISSS in 2017/18, and I lead both the SIG on Systems Philosophy and the SIG on Research Towards General Theories of Systems. I hope to use these positions to support research into the foundations of systems science and so help enhance the value of systems science.
