Here you will find an evolving list of researchers around the world who do agent-based modeling or related work. This list is intended as a resource for those interested in discovering people doing interesting research in ABM or related fields in different disciplines. Where ever possible, I try to link a picture of the person, which is directly linked to their website.
Total Researchers Listed on this Page: 14
John Eck’s research interests include the concentration of crime at places and prevention, crime displacement, criminal investigations, and the investigation of police misconduct.
Bruce Edmonds’s current research interests includes social and socially-situated intelligence; measures and characterisations of complexity; evolutionary processes; nature and application of context in cognitive and AI domains; social simulation; philosophy of science (particularly modelling); and the application of social processes/structures to computational systems.
Henk Elffers’ research interests include the application of agent-based models to issues of urban crime.
Sigrunn Eliassen’s research interests focus on how animals may allocate their foraging effort in response to experiences of local resource conditions, as environments vary in time and space.
Euel Elliott’s research interests include the dynamics of U.S. public policymaking, the relationship between technological change and policy evolution, and the application of complex adaptive systems to understanding political-economic change.
Corinna Elsenbroich has a PhD in Computer Science from King’s College London, in which she developed a logic for explanatory reasoning. Her background is in Philosophy, specialising in Philosophy of Science, with a BSc and MSc from the London School of Economics. Just prior to joining CRESS in the summer 2008, Corinna worked as an education researcher. Her two major projects were on mathematics education and on the new fashion for ‘happiness’ education, her main concern being that a psychologisation of education will impoverish moral education. At CRESS she will be working on the SIMIAN project, on the ‘Cognitive Bases of Normative Behaviour’.
Thierry Emonet is interested in biological sensing and decision making. He studies how bacteria sense and explore their environment, how flies smell, and how T cells decide to mount or not an immune response. He uses experiments and mathematical modeling to study the dynamical properties of biological systems and uncover the molecular origin of behavior. His lab employs a mixture of biologists, physicists, computer scientists and mathematicians.
Heiko Enderling’s research interests include basic cancer cell kinetics in tumor dormancy and progression; tumor morphological evolution; self-metastatic phenotype; mathamtical Modeling of stem cell mutations, tumorigenesis, tumor growth and invasion; irradiation response and radiotherapeutic design; tissue architecture evolution; invadopodia formation and cancer-microenvironment interaction; and computational simulations and high-dimensional visualization of mathematical models.
Joshua M. Epstein Ph.D. is Director of The Johns Hopkins University Center for Advanced Modeling in the Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences. He is Professor of Emergency Medicine, with Joint Appointments in the Departments of Economics, Biostatistics, and Environmental Health Sciences. His research focuses on agent-based modeling of complex social, economic, and health-related systems.
Margaret Eppstein’s research interests include “developing, studying, and using novel evolutionary and agent-based computational approaches for a wide range of important problems, including plant species’ invasiveness in ecological communities, biological speciation, the impact of spatial topologies on information flow through complex interaction networks, identifying nonlinear interactions between single nucleotide polymorphisms that predispose for complex disease traits, and agent-based integrated assessment modeling of transportation energy alternatives.”
Andreas Ernst’s research interest includes GLOWA-Danube (modeling typical domestic water users in the upper Danube catchment area); KUBUS (supporting regional adaptation to climate change by socio-scientific surveys, simulation and scenarios); STATuS (protection of the drinking water supply against CBNR-threat-scenarios – technique and strategy development); CAVES (complexity: agents, volatility, evidence and scale); and AMoSS (actor-based modeling and steering of innovations in material flows).
Stephen Eubank’s research interests include modeling and simulating large co-evolving networks, particularly physical infrastructure networks coupled to social interaction networks. Most recently, I have been applying individual-based models of social contact networks to epidemiology as part of the NIH Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study (MIDAS) program.
Andy Evans’ research interests centre on socio-economic and ecological agent-based modelling and generic agent-based issues such as model validation. He has been involved in modelling projects looking at retail, housing, crime, and agricultural epidemiology. He is a founding member of the Multi-Agent Systems and Simulation (MASS) research group at Leeds.
Tom Evans’ research interests fall broadly within the area of human-environement relations and human dimensions of global change. His current research focuses on the role of institutions and policy in local and regional level environmental change processes as well as the influence of various household dynamics (e.g. risk, vulnerability, uncertainty) in land change systems. Methodologically he utilizes GIS, remote sensing, spatial modeling (particularly agent-based modeling) and experimental economics.
