The PhD project will focus on modeling fish migration along rivers. The main objectives are to determine the effects of artificial light at night on fish migration, and to identify criteria for artificial sustainable light management. The ideal candidate has a solid understanding of ecological concepts, combining experience in spatial explicit approaches in environmental modelling (e.g. agent-based models) with an interest in confronting ecological theory and models with experimental data.
NEW 4-YEAR PHD PROGRAM IN MODELING AND ENGINEERING RISK AND COMPLEXITY AT THE
NEW SCHOOL FOR ADVANCED STUDIES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NAPLES FEDERICO II
From climate change and sustainability to seismic engineering and Industry 4.0, all the crucial challenges facing mankind today require the ability to understand and engineer ever growing reliable interdependent, complex and interconnected systems and infrastructures.
The Call for Applications for the new 4 year PhD Program in Modeling an[…]
In the past weeks we have developed an agent based social simulation for the COVID crisis (ASSOCC). The results are continuously updated on the website of the project: https://simassocc.org/. At the moment we have quite a complex model that does a good job to simulate the epidemiological, economic and social effects of the crisis and their dependencies. The model now runs with 1000 agents.
The whole model is built in NetLogo and now reached its limits. In order to move on to scenarios with […]

Adaptive resilient economy: responding to shocks under boundedly-rational economic expectations
We focus on modeling economy as an adaptive complex system. Heterogeneous economic agents with bounded rationality and imperfect information make decisions and interact with each other giving rise to macroeconomic phenomena. Economies globally become more interconnected and prone to shocks (incl. climate-induced natural hazards). How do networked economies recover and evolve in face of adversities?
Opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to join an interdisciplinary team at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that is focused on a federally funded project to develop an agent-based model to simulate school meal environments in an effort to identify appropriate strategies to reduce food waste and improve fruit and vegetable consumption in the National School Lunch Program.
