Karoline Wiesner received her Ph.D. in Physics at Uppsala University in Sweden, in 2004, on the topic of experimental and computational studies of electronic structure and molecular dynamics. She received postdoctoral funding from the Wenner-Gren Foundation in Stockholm to join the group of Jim Crutchfield at the Santa Fe Institute for Complex Systems, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Here she started her work on the mathematical foundations of intrinsic computation in natural systems. Her particular interest is natural computation in quantum systems. Following the Crutchfield group to UC Davis, she was a postdoc at the Center for Computational Science and Engineering, an interdisciplinary campus initiative.
In 2007 Karoline Wiesner joined the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol as permanent faculty. She is the Director of Studies at the Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences.
