Dr Mladen Domazet graduated in Physics and Philosophy from the University of Oxford and completed a doctorate in Philosophy of Science at the University of Zagreb. His research interest currently focuses on theories of scientific explanation, degrowth-compatible explanatory frameworks of social metabolism, and social attitudes relevant to sustainability.

His publications reflect a career of diverse interdisciplinary interests and collaborations, from analysis of Wikipedias as complex networks, through analyses of sustainability education curricula in Europe to structural aspects of depth of explanation in contemporary physics.

He’s currently engaged in research on sustainability and degrowth dispositions of small semiperipheral societies, and ecological aspects of social stratification in Croatia.
