Since May 2012, Petter Törnberg works as a doctorate within the complex systems group at Physical Resource Theory. His work focuses on applying a complexity perspective to analyze the social implications of the innovation processes of our society, attempting to find ways to improve these processes to reduce their negative social and environmental externalities. From 2017 onward, he will be working as a Postdoc at the Department of Sociology at University of Amsterdam, focusing on digital trace data analysis for the study of opinion dynamics and social conflict.
