Agent Based Modeling–Researching Infrastructure Interdependencies
Human behavioral ecology, marine ecology, cognitive sciences, decision making under uncertainty
I am interested in application of abm to dynamic network modeling for applications to social psychology
Exhaustible natural resources
Network game theory models
Andrew Bell (Ph.D. 2010, Michigan) was a Research Fellow in the Environment and Production Technology Division at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in Washington, DC. His current research portfolio focuses on the use of field instruments – such as discrete choice experiments, framed field experiments, randomized control trials – to inform behavior in agent-based models of coupled human-natural systems. Prior to this post, Andrew was a post-doctoral research fellow at The Earth Institute at Columbia University, where he focused on developing applications for paleo-climate histories.
My research involves the application of behavioral ecological models to archaeological problems with a focus on Pacific Island societies.
I am interested in using agent based modelling and systematic data collection to understand diachronic human-environment interactions in the Maya region of Guatemala, Mexico, and Belize.
