Biography

After teaching appointments at the universities of Leyden (1972-1976) and Amsterdam (1976-1985) in the Netherlands, Cambridge University (1985-1995) in the UK; and the University of Paris I (Pantheon-Sorbonne) (1995-2004) in France, Sander van der Leeuw is a Foundation Professor at Arizona State University and co-director of the ASU-SFI Center for Biosocial Complex Systems.

In July 2001, Professor van der Leeuw was appointed Secretary-General of the French Conseil National de Coordination des Sciences de l'Homme et de la Societe (National Council for the Coordination of the Humanities and Social Sciences). This was followed by an appointment as Deputy Director for Social Sciences at the CNRS (2002-2003) and at the National Institute for the Sciences of the Universe, in charge of a program similar to the Long Term Ecological Research program in the US. In 2003, he was appointed chair of the Department of Anthropology at Arizona State University in the U.S., where he became Founding Director of the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, an interdisciplinary unit based around anthropology that focuses on some of the major challenges of the 21st century, and subsequently Chair of the Consortium for Biosocial Complex Systems and Dean of the School of Sustainability. He was an external professor at the Santa Fe Institute (USA) (2000-2019), is a correspondent of the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences since 1995 and held a Chair at the Institut Universitaire de France (2002-2006). He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the Beijer Institute of Environmental Economic of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. In 2012 he was awarded the "Champion of the Earth for Science and Innovation" prize by the United Nations Environment Program.

Research Interests

Professor van der Leeuw is an archeologist and historian by training, specializing in the long-term impacts of human activity on the landscape. He is recognized as a pioneer in the application of the complex adaptive systems approach to socio-environmental challenges, and in this context has studied ancient technologies, ancient and modern man-land relationships, and innovation. A native of Holland who speaks five languages, van der Leeuw has done archaeological fieldwork in Syria, Holland, and France, and conducted ethno-archaeological studies in the Near East, the Philippines and Mexico. In the 1990's he coordinated for the European Union a series of interdisciplinary research projects on socio-natural interactions and modern environmental problems. This work spans all the countries along the northern Mediterranean rim, and used the complex adaptive systems approach to improve understanding of these interactions and their impact on sustainability the first of its kind. In the 2000's he co-directed an (equally EU-funded) project on invention and innovation from a Complex Adaptive Systems perspective. For both these projects, he was awared the 2012 UNEP "Champion of the Earth" award.

His current research interests are in the development of Global Systems Science, the study of the relationship between sustainability and innovation, the long-term evolution of human information processing and the application of transdisciplinarity to research.

His field specializations include: Archaeology, Ceramic Technology, Complex Systems Theory, Ethnoarchaeology, Human-Environment Interaction, Identity and Differentiation, Land Use, Modeling and Simulation, Urban Origins and Dynamics
