A pioneer in the field of complex systems, he joined the CAS faculty in 1976 after serving seven years on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology physics faculty. His interdisciplinary scholarship has led to innovative collaborations spanning sociology, economics, finance, computer science, biology, physiology, medicine, chemistry, materials science, physics, applied mathematics, and education. His numerous publications are among the most frequently cited of any physicist worldwide. Elected to the National Academy of Sciences, Gene is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Physical Society.
