Dr Chew research interest is to investigate and uncover the fundamental physical mechanisms and organization principles of complex systems. He explores and elucidates the underlying behaviour and dynamics of these systems through theoretical modelling based on statistical and nonlinear physics. His current research focus is on the topic of: quantum complexity; quantum chaos and entanglement; statistical physics of protein aggregation; critical phenomena in social and coupled social-ecological systems; complexity measure and characterization of complex systems.
