This PhD represents an exciting opportunity to develop cutting edge methods of agent-based model building and analysis on a socially relevant topic. You will be expected to translate theoretical mechanisms of economic inequality and segregation into programmable rules of actions for agents within an agent-based model. You will implement these mechanisms and integrate them[…]
