The main current work of mine is concerned with applying
the theoretical methods that has been Developed for the analysis of stochastic fluctuations and
complex networks. Developing new algorithms and quantifying the characteristics of stochastic
processes, complex networks and random matrix theory are some of the main challenges in my current
research on such complex systems. I am interested in gaining deeper insights into stochastic
processes, especially those that are nonstationary, coupled series and identify applications in other fields to
which I can apply the methods and expertise. In order to improve my abilities in understanding the nature of the
processes, I intend to investigate whether the methods that I have developed can be applied to such
important problems as rough surfaces and finance & social problems. Research Abstract: My research work is in the field of complex systems. More in detail, I
currently focus on the following topics:  Community structure of complex networks  Statistical physics approach to social & Econo
physics  Stochastic processes, especially those that are
nonstationary & coupled series  The effect of rough surfaces in wave scattering and
transport... which is considered in as a stochastic process or in fractional
space. Dr. Gholamreza Jafari Associate Professor: Department of
