I am a Doctoral Researcher at the CNRS - Institut des Géosciences de l’Environnement (UMR5001), University Grenoble Alpes, France. My current research interests are primarily in the modelling and simulation of large-scale complex systems. I’m particularly interested in understanding the effect that human behaviour has on such systems and the important role that individual behavioural interactions have on system level dynamics. Current application areas include the study of human crowds, human-flood interactions, crisis management and disaster risk management. My research line focuses on exploring how behavioural changes at the micro level may lead to critical transitions on a macro level in complex adaptive human-environment systems. I am working with spatial simulation models to study socioeconomic impacts of disasters and the emergence of resilience across scales.

Klaus G. Troitzsch was a full professor of computer applications in the social sciences at the University of Koblenz-Landau since 1986 until he officially retired in 2012 (but continues his academic activities). He took his first degree as a political scientist. After eight years in active politics in Hamburg and after having taken his PhD, he returned to academia, first as a senior researcher in an election research project at the University of Koblenz-Landau, from 1986 as full professor of computer applications in the social sciences. His main interests in teaching and research are social science methodology and, especially, modelling and simulation in the social sciences.
Among his early research projects there is the MIMOSE project which developed a declarative functional simulation language and tool for micro and multilevel simulation between 1986 and 1992. Several EU funded projects were devoted to social simulation and policy modelling, the most recent from 2012 to 2015 combining data/text mining and agent-based simulation to analyse the global dynamics of extortion racket systems.
He authored, co-authored, and co-edited several books and many articles in social simulation, and he organised or co-organised a number of national and international conferences in this field. Over nearly three decades he advised and/or supervised more than 55 PhD theses, most of them in the field of social simulation. He offered annual summer and spring courses in social simulation between 1997 and 2009; more recent courses of this kind are now being organised by the European Social Simulation Assiciation and held at different places all over Europe (mostly with his contributions).
