On the 20 October 2021, José Moran travelled to Paris to take part in a competition organised by the Institut des Systèmes Complexes (Complex Systems Institute). He received one of four prizes, awarded for the research he conducted for his PhD thesis, "Statistical physics and anomalous macroeconomic fluctuations", where he used tools from statistical physics and numerical simulations to study the mechanisms of amplification for fluctuations in the economy.

This prize is awarded every year to promising young researchers working in complexity science and mathematical modelling in a wide range of domains, going from epidemiology, biology, physics and economics to quantitative linguistics.
