Hi! My name is Harun Šiljak [haːrun ʃɪʎak]: welcome to my personal page.

I’m assistant professor in embedded systems (optimisation and control) at the School of Engineering (Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department), Trinity College Dublin. I do research in the field of complex systems and unconventional control/computation/communication. The science and technology of complex networks spills over into the social context–I am curious about the applications and implications of complexity in society.

I also write science fiction, with an ocassional genre-bending exercise. A lot of my writing is dedicated to popular science and its relationship with philosophy, economics, and politics.

Easiest contact method: harun dot siljak [youknowwhat] tcd dot ie.

A map of my education, research, teaching, admin and outreach activities is given below–caveat lector, it turns into a complex network fast. (November 2020 note: the maps are slightly outdated as I transition to my new role)

Also: IEEE Senior Member, COST Action CA18232 (MAT-DYN-NET) Science Communication Officer, Marie Curie Alumni Association Western Balkans Chapter Communication Officer, member of the Bohemian FC , NK Čelik Zenica, and Clapton CFC.
