Andreu Arinyo i Prats - New postdoc at the Department of Archeaology and Heritage Studies
Andreu is affiliated CAS as postdoc from 1 September. He will work on the project: Cultural Loss Under Bottlenecks - Demographic and Environmental Shocks.
I seek the understanding of our world and how that knowledge will evolve with time. To that endeavour, I pursued studies and research in physics, theoretical physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. To contextualize that formation, I set about travelling the world, exposing myself to different cultural systems. That experience highlighted the precarious state of most world cultures with the exposure to rapid change and shocks in the following decades. To bridge that realization with my previous studies, I shifted to complex systems, with research in dynamical systems and information theory. In parallel, I prepared a project to model and characterize the susceptivity to cultural loss in the context of shocks. This project has been awarded a Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions grant to pursue that research for 3 years.
In my spare time, I love reading, talking and writing about the state of our present world and how it came to be. Moreover, I like travelling, cycling, cooking, hiking, kayaking, climbing and ever struggling with learning music and languages!
