Agent-based modelling of sustainable residential electricity consumer behaviour
My PHD project focuses on understanding factors influencing individual sustainable consumption behaviour and how these factors could promote a sustainability transition.
Agent Based Modelling of energy consumer’s awareness diffusion. Role of smart metering in energy consumption. Social norm as limiting factor against rebound effects. Role of behavioral changes in energy efficiency.
consumer market forecasting, diffusion
simulation consumer behavior by MABS
My main interests are system dynamics and multi agent simulation used for support of business and marketing decisions (e.g. modeling of consumer markets) and in business education (e.g. development of open source business simulators). Amongst my other interests are applied marketing research, relationships between academia and industry, financial literacy, mind and concept mapping.
Behavioural aspects of environmental problems: Use of evolutionary approaches to investigate how people react to environmental policy.
Climate-economic Models: Understand how economic agents think and decide about climate change and climate protection
Behavioural ecology and modelling of ant behaviour, with an emphasis on understanding how individual-level complexity affects collective decision-making
My dissertation research at the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy focuses on food safety and consumer choices, using agent-based models as a novel method for investigating this policy space.
