Representations in C2 systems
ABM applied to natural resources and reputation/colaboration.
Use of ABM in areas related to Systems Engineering and Automatic Control.

Andrew Crooks is an Associate Professor with a joint appointment between the Computational Social Science Program within the Department of Computational and Data Sciences and the Department of Geography and GeoInformation Science, which are part of the College of Science at George Mason University. His areas of expertise specifically relate to integrating agent-based modeling (ABM) and geographic information systems (GIS) to explore human behavior. Moreover, his research focuses on exploring and understanding the natural and socio-economic environments specifically urban areas using GIS, spatial analysis, social network analysis (SNA), Web 2.0 technologies and ABM methodologies.
GIS, Agent-based modeling, social network analysis
Agent Based Modeling (ABM), Agent Based Social System (ABSS), Multi-Agent Systems (MAS), Bayesian learning, Social networks Analysis (SNA), Socio ecological Dynamics.
ABM researches on the theory of social systems. For example, the formation of a community, the origin of politics, nation, and state.
Currently I develop ABM models to follow up issues raised in my previous research on trade between hunting groups and long-distance trade, territoriality and migration patterns.
Interested in how technology innovation impacts people’s lives.
