Professor Anne-Marie Grisogono is a complex systems scientist and Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Flinders University. She holds a PhD in Mathematical Physics, and has worked in experimental and theoretical atomic and molecular physics, and lasers and nonlinear optics in various universities, followed by 20 years of applied R&D in the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (now DST Group), working on systems design, modelling and simulation, and future concept development and experimentation.
Professor Grisogono led the development of DSTO’s Synthetic Environment Research Facility. Subsequently appointed Research Leader, she raised an enabling research program into complex systems science for defence, winning a prestigious DSTO Long Range Research Fellowship for 3 years. She worked closely with Army leaders to incorporate research results into their doctrine, operations, organisational design and reframing of their approach to strategic research and development planning. Her current research interests include fundamental questions of complexity science and improving the methodologies and tools that can be applied to dealing with complex problems.
