Mission Statement
My main research topic is the application of Computer Simulation and Artificial Intelligence to study human-centric and coupled human-natural complex adaptive systems. I am a strong advocate of using Co-Creation for object oriented Agent-Based Modelling (ooABM). This novel and highly interdisciplinary research agenda involves disciplines like Social Science, Economics, Psychology, Geography, Operations Research, and Computer Science. My current research focus is twofold. On the methodological frontier I aim to advance the model development strategies for ooABM, through the Engineering Agent-Based Social Simulations (EABSS) toolkit. On the practical frontier I look at novel uses of simulation for studying Urban Sustainability (including Smart Cities and Smart Roads), modelling Human Behaviour in Floods using ooABM and Virtual Reality, and modelling people's wellbeing at local and global scale. I was a co-investigator in the Leverhulme funded project Sustaining Urban Habitats. Furthermore, I am working together with Nottingham City Council's Transport Strategy Department on some Smart City projects.
