Shlomo Havlin is a Professor in the Physics Department at Bar-Ilan University in Israel. He has carried out fundamental research in applications of statistical physics to areas such as complex networks, infrastructure resilience, geophysics, climate, medicine, biology, and others. Most recently, he has focused on interdependence between infrastructure networks such as the power grid and communications network; and novel methods for understanding traffic congestion in urban settings. Havlin has published over 800 scientific papers and is among the two most cited scientists in Israel with over 100,000 citations and an h-index of 136 (Google Scholar). For his works, he has been awarded the Lilienfeld Prize from the American Physical Society, the Rothschild Prize, the Order of the Star of Italy, and most recently, the Israel Prize for Physics and Chemistry.
