I fully support the Statement on Terrorist Attacks by scientists and scholars of the global SIMSOC network.
Mission Statement
My main research interest is the application of computer simulation to study human-centric and coupled human-natural systems. Here I focus on model development strategies. I am a strong advocate of object oriented Agent-Based Social Simulation (ooABSS). This is a novel and highly interdisciplinary research field, involving disciplines like Social Science, Economics, Psychology, Operations Research, Geography, and Computer Science.

My current research focusses on Urban Sustainability. I am a co-investigator and supervisor in several related projects and a member of the university's "Sustainable and Resilient Cities" Research Priority Area management team.
  • I have given a LAND seminar at the School of Mathematics, University of Leeds. The slides are available here [url]
  • If you want to have a recipe for successfully developing Agent-Based Social Simulation models, have a look at my latest work: [presentation] [poster] [illustrative example]
  • My colleague Tom Rodden gave an excellent interview on work-life balance and how to survive in academia [url].
  • I delivered a guest lecture at SBE Loughborough on Agent-Based Social Simulation. Slides are available here [url]
  • Finally, my JASSS Special Issue "Engineering Agent Based Social Simulations" is out. Many thanks to everyone who helped with it! The Editorial can bew found here [url]
  • I passed my PGCHE :). A summary of my TD and IP courseworks in form of a working paper 'Changing the Assessment Strategy for the Computer Science Module "Simulation for Decision Support": A Longitudinal Study' can be found here [url]
  • We have won the EMSS2014 Best Paper Award for our paper: "Faboya OT and Siebers PO (2014) On the Search for Novel Simulation Application to Support Airport Operations Management" [url]
