  • PhD in Physics, 2014
  • MSc in Physics, 2009
  • BSc in Physics, 2007


Dr. Leandro Junges graduated with a BSc. degree in physics from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre - Brazil, and got a MSc. degree in theoretical physics at the same institution. Still at UFRGS, He received his Ph.D. degree, studying different types of dynamical systems subjected to delayed feedback.

His research interests include the numerical study of complex dynamical systems in different contexts such as biomedical systems, population dynamics and lasers.

He is currently working as a Research Fellow at the Centre for Systems Modelling and Quantitative Biomedicine (IMSR - UoB), in a project in partnership with Neuronostics Ltd.
