External responsibilities

Director of the research center in complex systems naXys 2010-2014

Director of the research team "Dynamical systems" 2008-2017

President of the Graduate School FNRS "Non-linear phenomena, Complex Systems and Statistical Mechanics" 2011-2017


After a Masters degree in Physics (University of Florence, June 1995) Timoteo Carletti continued his doctoral studies in Florence (Italy) and in Paris (France) at IMCEE, and finally defended his doctoral thesis in mathematics in February 2000.


After several postdoctoral research stays - including Paris XI, IMPA (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), ¿Scuola Normale Superiore¿ Pisa (Italy), University of Padova (Italy) - he was hired as a "senior researcher" in the framework of the European Project PACE FP6 (University of Venice, Italy).


Hence in 2005 he moved to Belgium where he was hired at the University of Namur as a lecturer, then as a professor (September 2008), and finally as a Full Professor (September 2011) in the Department of applied Mathematics. In 2010 he was among the creators of the Namur Center for Complex Systems and up to december 2014he assumed the leadership of this research center.


He supervised several theses and master theses mainly in mathematics, but also in economics, biology and computer sciences. He actively contributes to the doctoral and postdoctoral training in the field of complex systems in Belgium, through its presidency of the Graduate School FNRS "COMPLEX" since January 2011. He presented more than fifty seminars and he is author of more than fifty publications, in fields as varied as: biology, celestial mechanics, chaos detection, complex networks, control of systems, dynamic systems, economics, particle accelerators, social dynamics.


He is a member of numerous scientific boards and reviewer for several journals. He organized several national and international conferences - among which ECCS12 in Brussels (Belgium) - and he is PI or co-PI of several national - among which the IAP VIII / 19 DYSCO - Dynamical SYStems Control and Optimization DYSCO - and international research projects.
