Welcome to The Complexity in Health & Infrastructure Group

KSUA Main Hall

The Complexity in Health & Infrastructure Group (CHIG) promotes the application of complexity science to the study of health, health care and societal infrastructures through a cross-disciplinary program of teaching, training and research. The CHIG's application of complexity science includes complex systems thinking, computational modeling, network analysis, data mining, and qualitative and historical approaches to complexity. The CHIG is specifically committed to collaborating with experts and practitioners in the health and utility industries in Ohio, the United States and on an international level; and to students and faculty at Kent State University. The CHIG is affiliated with the Robert S. Morrison Health and Science Building, Kent State University at Ashtabula. Other affiliations we are working on include Kent State University's College of Public Health and the Kent-Summa Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.

The group has several foci:

KSUA Health & Sciences Building
  • Becoming a leading international research center in the application of complexity science to the study of health, health care and infrastructure;
  • Generating revenue for our campus through extramural funding;
  • Fostering interdisciplinary research with faculty at the Ashtabula campus, as well as Kent State University and other universities;
  • Developing our undergraduate student population’s skills in science, technology and mathematics in application to health, health care and infrastructure;
  • Developing collaborative research relations with health and infrastructure agencies and businesses to promote the health and well-being of people worldwide.

The current topics of the CHIG are:
