Murilo S. Baptista has been a Senior Lecturer at the Institute for Complex Systems and Mathematical Biology (ICSMB), University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK, since 2009. He obtained his Ph.D. degree "Perturbing nonlinear systems, a treatment for the control of chaos" at the Institute of Physics, University of Sao Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil, in 1996. After that, he worked as a Postdoc in the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA, from 1997 to 1999, the University of São Paulo from 1999 to 2004, Brazil, and the University of Potsdam from 2004 to 2006, Germany. He was a Guest Scientist in the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, Germany, (2007-2008) and a Guest Assistant Professor at the Centre for Applied Mathematics, Portugal (2008-2009). One of the main topics of his research is related to unravelling the complex relationship among information transmission, synchronisation (phase and complete), collective behaviour, Poincare recurrence, and dynamical invariants (such as Lyapunov exponents and dimensions) in dynamical and complex networks. He has also an applied scientific profile. He is currently working with chaos-based wireless communication, chaos-based and dynamical cryptography, stability and control of the modern power grid, the grammatical rules of the DNA. He is a Permanent Member of the Alexander von Humboldt foundation, the University of Aberdeen Representative for the energy theme in the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA), and a Member of the Steering Committee on Energy at the University of Aberdeen.
