I joined QMUL in 2007 as a lecturer in
Applied Mathematics. I have a D.Phil. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Oxford and held postdoctoral research positions at the Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Universität des Saarlandes.
My interests are focused on stochastic non-equilibrium systems including:
- large deviations, fluctuation theorems
- applications, e.g., traffic, econophysics, biological modelling.
- Current loops and fluctuations in the zero-range process on a diamond lattice, R. Villavicencio-Sanchez, R. J. Harris and H. Touchette, J. Stat. Mech., P07007 (2012).
- Large deviation approach to nonequilibrium systems, H. Touchette and R. J. Harris, arXiv:1110.5216, draft chapter for book on "Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics of Small Systems" eds. R. Klages, W. Just and C. Jarzynski (2013).
- Traffic of cytoskeletal motors with disordered attachment rates, H. Grzeschik, R. J. Harris and L. Santen,
Phys. Rev. E 81, 031929 (2010).
- First-order phase transitions from poles in asymptotic representations of partition functions, H. Touchette, R. J. Harris and J. Tailleur, Phys. Rev. E 81, 030101(R) (2010).
- Fourier's law on a one-dimensional optical random lattice, T. Platini, R. J. Harris and D. Karevski, J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 43, 135003 (2010).
- Current fluctuations in stochastic systems with long-range memory, R. J. Harris and H. Touchette, J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 42, 342001 (2009).
- Short-time behaviour of demand and price viewed through an
exactly solvable model for heterogeneous interacting market agents, G. M. Schütz, F. Pigeard de Almeida Prado,
R. J. Harris and V. Belitsky, Physica A 388, 4126 (2009).
- On the range of validity of the fluctuation theorem for stochastic Markovian dynamics, A. Rákos and R. J. Harris, J. Stat. Mech., P05005 (2008).
- Fluctuation theorems for stochastic dynamics,
R. J. Harris and G. M. Schütz, J. Stat. Mech., P07020 (2007).
- Hydrodynamics of the zero-range process in the condensation regime,
G. M. Schütz and R. J. Harris, J. Stat. Phys., 127, 419 (2007).
- Scaling approach to related disordered stochastic and free-fermion models,
R. J. Harris and R. B. Stinchcombe, Phys. Rev. E 75, 031104 (2007).
- Breakdown of Gallavotti-Cohen symmetry for stochastic dynamics,

In 2012–2013 I am teaching the following course:
Please note that Dr Juan Valiente Kroon has now taken over from me as Departmental Contact for students on the Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (SEFP). His information page for SEFP students associated with Mathematical Sciences can be found here.
- MTH6110: Communicating and Teaching Mathematics: the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme
Supplementary information is now available on QMplus.
For my current Office Hours, please see my official page.
I am currently involved in running the QMUL Statistical Mechanics Study Group and am or have been co-organizer of the following workshops:
I enjoy travelling, hillwalking and trying to beat my colleagues at squash. For some years I have been a leader at Rempstone Adventure Camp.
