Hardik Rajpal started as a postdoctoral researcher working on the Shocks and Resilience project at Turing in the summer of 2021. As part of the Centre for Complexity Science, he obtained his PhD in Applied Mathematics from Imperial College London.

His research is driven by interdisciplinary applications of complexity science using tools from mathematical modelling, network science and information theory.  Initially inspired to tackle socio-economic complex systems using minority game and opinion dynamics, he has recently found a deep interest in understanding the brain as a complex system as well.

His current work focuses on deconstructing production technology in economies of the world. This work aims at quantifying sectoral interdependencies that contribute to the production functions.
