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: 15
Michael Jacobson’s research interests include: learning sciences; psychology of education; learning technologies and new media; learning, cognition and motivation; and agent-based modeling to facilitate these interests.
W. (Wander) Jager’s research interests include marketing, agent based simulation.
Marco A. Janssen’s research interests include how institutional arrangements related to common goods are crafted, adjusted and fit within the social and ecological context. By combining comparative analysis of case studies, lab and field experiments and agent-based modeling he pursues these questions in a wide diversity of applications especially environmental resources and public health.
Chad Jenkins’ research into robot learning from demonstration, or robot LfD, centers on the automated discovery of processes underlying human movement and decision making. In recent years, robot LfD has emerged as a compelling alternative, where robots are programmed implicitly from a user’s demonstration rather than explicitly through an intermediate form (e.g., hardcoded program) or task-unrelated secondary skills (e.g., computer programming). The role of learning, in this case, is the estimation of a human’s intended control policy or movement process from demonstrated examples.
Nick Jennings’ research covers both the theory and the application of such systems. Specifically, he has undertaken fundamental research on automated bargaining, auctions, markets, mechanism design, trust and reputation, coalition formation and decentralised control. He has also pioneered the application of multi-agent technology; developing some of the first real-world systems (in domains such as business process management, energy systems, sensor networks, disaster response, telecommunications, and eDefence) and generally advocating the area of agent-oriented software engineering.
Chang-Hyun Jo’ research interests include software process improvement (CMMI, SCAMPI), software architecture and design (ATAM Evaluation); agent-based software engineering, object-oriented software engineering, SaaS, ubiquitous computing, streaming technology, mobile agent computing, internet/web programming; programming language design and implementation (Concurrent Object-Oriented Programming Languages, Parallel-C++, CHILL, ITU-T SG10 Z.200); compilers/interpreters/debuggers, programming environments, and parallel/distributed programming on the Internet.
Paul E. Johnson’s research area in political science used to be pretty tightly focused on interest group politics. Since then, his interests have broadened to include electoral institutions and public opinion. His methods are, for the most part, formal and mathematical. Now he is working on several medium to large simulation modeling projects using Swarm, a “software toolkit” which was originated by Chris Langton and the Swarm Team at the Santa Fe Institute and has since moved on to become an open source community effort under the auspices of the Swarm Development Group.
Peter A. Johnson’s research focuses on how tourism planners and communities can use specific information and communications technologies to make better planning decisions. In my research, I develop and evaluate a variety of approaches, including agent-based models (ABM), geographic information systems (GIS), and the Geospatial Web 2.0 (Geoweb), investigating the political, organizational, and technical implications of their use. I use these approaches to develop new and innovative ways of addressing fundamental tourism research topics, such as understanding the processes of destination growth and change, analyzing the spatial travel patterns of individual tourists, and improving the participation of stakeholders in the planning process.
Shane D Johnson research interests include the spatial and temporal distribution of crime and insurgent activity, event forecasting, and design against crime.
Erik Johnston’s research focuses on: 1. Assessing how models and simulations can aid individuals and groups when making policy choices 2. Understanding the dynamics of policy decisions for building and sustaining collaborations in civic, business, and academic contexts 3. Analyzing the influence of central-remote office arrangements and communication delay on technology supported work groups 4. Applying complex systems methodology and theory using agent based modeling as a complement to traditional quantitative and qualitative research methods
Gregory Todd Jones’ primary research area involves the application of evolutionary game theory, experimental economics, and behavioral psychology to negotiation and conflict resolution. Other areas of interest include the use of statistics as evidence, legal risk analysis, and empirical legal studies. His current research investigates trust, reputation, forgiveness, and emergent conflict and cooperation in computational simulation models and explores the nexus between conflict resolution theory and the biological basis for social organization.
Catholijn Jonker’s research interests include decision support systems,analysis and modelling of cognitive processes, dynamics of behaviour of agents, and organization dynamics.
Christian Jørgensen’s research interests include fisheries-induced evolution, evolutionary marine ecology, and methodologies for modelling evolution including agent-based modeling.
Sanjay Joshi’s research focues on ways to understand how engineered systems can be controlled (spacecraft, robots, human-machine interfaces), and how natural systems control themselves. To accomplish these goals, we explore how robotics and simulated agents can be used as tools for biology and animal behavior studies.
Kyle A. Joyce’s research interests include the study of international conflict (i.e., war expansion). He investigates conflict processes by developing models (e.g., game-theoretic, agent-based) and empirically testing model implications.
