César A. Parra Rojas

Postdoctoral Fellow



Short Bio

César is originally from Santiago, Chile. After obtaining his MSc in Physics at Universidad de Chile in 2013, he started working in the Complex Systems and Statistical Physics Group at the University of Manchester, where he completed his PhD in Theoretical Physics in January 2017.


His research interests concern the interdisciplinary applications of statistical physics. César has joined the group of Systems Medicine of Infectious Diseases to work on multiscale modelling and stochastic approaches and its implications to infectious diseases and vaccination.
