Modeling and simulation of complex systems, particularly, interbank networks; economic models and critical phenomena modeling
I have a particular interest in the way in which social network structure influences dynamic processes operating over the netowrk, such as adoption of behaviour or spread of disease. More generally, I am interested in using complex systems methods to understand social phenomena.
Modeling of Social Phenomena, Graph Algorithms, Opinion and Information Dynamics
Critical simulation of social simulation techniques
political methodology research covering agent-based modelling and simulation of political phenomena,computational models of political phenomena (political attitudes, elite, corruption, political clientelism, state capture)
Simulation of emergent behavior systems and metrics associated with the detection and characterization of emergent phenomena.
My primary research interest is in developing spatial computer models of social phenomena and my focus, in particular, has been on crime simulation.
Agent based modelling in water management, especially focused in extreme phenomena such floods and droughts.
I am a formally oriented philosopher, applying computational techniques to questions of social epistemology and political philosophy. My current research is focused on explanations and interventions for phenomena of collective irrationality.
