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: 17
Giorgio Fagiolo’s research interests include agent-based computational economics; empirics and theory of economic networks; and the statistical properties of microeconomic and macroeconomic dynamics.
Alessandro Farinelli research interests include mobile robots (legged soccer robots), multi-agent and multi-robot systems such as market based control; RoboCare: an integrated system assistance of elderly people; multi-robot systems for search and rescue applications; and multi-agent system for monitoring and simulating rescue operations in large scale-disaster.
Roberta Ferrario graduated in 1998 in Philosophy of Science at the University of Milan, then she moved to Trento in order to work with the research group led by Fausto Giunchiglia. In 2003, she received a PhD in Philosophy both at the University of Milan and at the University Marc Bloch of Strasbourg (Italy-France co-tutelle program), with a dissertation on counterfactual reasoning. In 2001-2002 she has been assistant at the course on “computer science for the humanities” at the University of Trento, and in 2002-2003 she taught the same course. In 2003-2004 she’s visiting scholar at the EPGY center in Stanford. Currently, she cooperates with LOA and she’s mainly working on e-Government, social ontology, ontology of mental attitudes and intentional agents in general.
Øyvind Fiksen’s research focuses on basic scientific understanding of how processes at the level of individuals drive the dynamics of populations and communities. He works mainly with the marine habitat, but supplement also with theoretical models such as agent-based models.
Tatiana (Tanya) Filatova’s research intersts include urban economics and land-use modelling; ecological and environmental economics; agent-based modelling; water management (flood risk management); and economics of climate change.
John Finnigan’s research focuses on complex systems science, network theory and agent based modelling in relation to earth system dynamics and global change; atmospheric boundary layer flow over vegetation canopies and complex topography, theory, measurement and applications.
David N. Fisman’s research interests include epidemiology of infectious diseases (i.e., community- and hospital-acquired pneumonia, epidemiology of enteric infections, sexually transmitted infections, laboratory datasets as epidemiological resources, infectious diseases, seasonality, environment, and climate change); mathematical modeling and simulation; decision analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis; and occupational injury and blood exposure in healthcare workers.
Andreas Flache’s research is concentrated in the research line “Modelling norms and networks” located at the ICS / Department of Sociology of the University of Groningen. He also has general research interest in co-operation and social integration and how this is related to the structure and emergence of social networks. Social networks may be both result and pre-condition of cooperative behavior
Shlomit Flint’s current research focuses on theoretical and applied aspects of urban and regional dynamics, residential distribution in the city, urban and religious planning.
Virginia A. Folcik’s research currently includes studying the role of the immune system in disease, computer modeling (agent-based modeling) of the immune system and other complex systems; using agent-based modeling to study mechanisms of interstitial lung disease; and applying computational methods to biomedical data sets.
Duncan Foley’s research interests include classical, neoclassical, and Marxian economic theory; political economy; monetary economics; economic complexity; global environmental economic policy; and agent-based modeling in economics.
Corentin M. FONTAINE’s research interests focus Agent-Based Modelling (ABM), Spatio-temporal modelling, urban land use, residential land function, and sustainable development.
Stan Franklin’s research interests include cognitive modeling using the IDA and LIDA models (see CCRG), control of autonomous agents, cognitive agents architecture and theory (CAAT), “conscious” software agents intelligent tutoring systems (old), general purpose neurocomputing (back burner), computability theory of neural networks (very old), and catagorical topology (ancient).
Terrill L. Frantz’s research includes developing computational models and theories of organizational behavior occurring during a “strategic combination”, e.g., mergers, alliances, joint ventures, etc.; Applying network analysis theory and methods to study and manage organizations; applying mathematical modeling and computer simulation techniques to understand human behavior and performance in organizations.
The purpose of Tyler Frazier’s research was to create an agent-based urban simulation based on land use at the plot level for projecting the disaggregated electricity demand of the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA). A simulation system comprised of location choice, regression, and simple models were used to project household, employment and land development decisions. Households, persons, and jobs tables were synthetically generated from GLSS5 (Ghana Living Standards Survey 2005) data using Stata, built in a MySQL database and incorporated for use in the Open Platform for Urban Simulation (OPUS). Electricity demand was projected for each of the simulation years based on a regression model. Numerous geospatial datasets were projected and edited in ArcGIS which describe the physical composition of Accra in its totality, including buildings, roads and electricity infrastructure. Household mobility was estimated from a modified Cox Regression of residential mobility in Accra (Bertrand et al.) and applied to the GLSS5 for use in the location choice model, while employment coefficients and parameters describing land value were derived from literature (Buckley et al.). The model has been applied for projecting the electricity demand of the Korle Bu district in terms of high, medium and low economic and population growth rates for the time period 2006 until 2025, based on monthly electricity consumption per meter. An additional phase of this research envisions including all 12 GAMA districts (using data which has been obtained); infrastructure models to project demand for transportation, water & sewer, and solid waste facilities; as well as comparing weak and strong sustainability scenarios with the business-as-usual development path for cost-benefit analysis of proposed public policies.
Judy K. Frels’ research focuses on the marketing of high-technology products, competitive strategies in network markets, consumers’ ability to cope with technology, and consumer switching costs. She uses both traditional survey methodology as well as computerized agent-based simulations.
Robert M. French’s research includes connectionist modeling, catastrophic interference, connectionist modeling, catastrophic interference, categorization in children and infants, bilingualism, foundations of cognitive science (esp. Turing Test), analogy-making, and computational models of evolution.
