I use ABM to study organizations, leadership, employee behavior and performance, and the social/psychological theories addressing workplace behavior and outcomes.
I have also used ABM to explore mass violence, active shooters, and mass shootings, including the spread of mass violence and its antecedents.
Guido Fioretti, born 1964, graduated in Electronic Engineering in 1991 at La Sapienza University, Rome. In 1995, he received a PhD in Economics from the same university. Guido Fioretti is currently a lecturer of Organization Science at the University of Bologna.
His research interests combine economics with cognitive sciences in order to model decision-making facing uncertainty. He is particularly interested in connectionist models of individual and organizational decision-making.
Guido Fioretti makes use of agent-based models, statistical network analysis, neural networks, evidence theory and cognitive maps. He is not interested in equilibrium models.
I study human culture and cooperation in relationship to the environment. In particular, I study how social norms, institutions and societies evolve, and how they are influenced by ecological and social forces. I strive to use this research to learn how to better build durable, sustainable and just institutions and societies. I use experimental economics and agent-based modeling to explore these connections, and work with lot of wonderful people.
