Smarzhevskiy Ivan, born 1961, graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Moscow State University in 1983. Candidate of Economic Sciences since 2000.
Research interests: individual and collective behavior in the organization, decision making, sociology of small groups.
decision making, sociology of small groups, agent based models
Inter-regional migration in Indonesia
I use Agent-Based Models to understand contemporary fertility decision making in below-replacement fertility contexts.
Human behavioral ecology, marine ecology, cognitive sciences, decision making under uncertainty
I am interested in the study of small-group decision-making using agent-based simulation of models grounded in sociological social psychology. I am also interested in a particular kind of small-group decision-making: peer review.
Agent-based modelling of migration decision-making under changing environmental conditions.
Behavioural ecology and modelling of ant behaviour, with an emphasis on understanding how individual-level complexity affects collective decision-making
Guido Fioretti, born 1964, graduated in Electronic Engineering in 1991 at La Sapienza University, Rome. In 1995, he received a PhD in Economics from this same university. Guido Fioretti is currently a lecturer of Organization Science at the University of Bologna.
I am interested in combining social with cognitive sciences in order to model decision-making facing uncertainty. I am particularly interested in connectionist models of individual and organizational decision-making.
I may make use of agent-based models, statistical network analysis, neural networks, evidence theory, cognitive maps as well as qualitative research, with no preference for any particular method. I dislike theoretical equilibrium models and empirical research based on testing obvious hypotheses.
