Gerald Silverberg studied physics and mathematics at Cornell and Harvard Universities in the USA. He worked as a science journalist in New York before moving to Europe and studying economics and economic history, as well as mathematical systems theory. He was a Research Associate at the University of Stuttgart from 1983 to 1987 with primary responsibility for a research project on technical change and the theory of self-organisation, sponsored by the German Research Council (DFG). In 1987 he was employed by the International Federation of Institutes for Advanced Study (IFIAS); since January 1988 he has been a Senior Research Fellow at the Maastricht Economic and Social Research and Training Centre on Innovation and Technology (MERIT).
Dr. Silverberg first worked at IIASA in 1995/96. He returned to the Institute in July 2006 and is currently working with the DYN Program.
