|2013123131 December 2013||Accounting for sustainability: developing an integrated approach for sustainability assessments|
This is a cross-disciplinary project involving social science and computer science. It aims to develop a new approach to sustainability in our cities and organizations.
|2012123131 December 2012||An extensible agent-based framework for exploring climate change adaptation|
The goal of this project is to facilitate exploration of possible climate-change-adaptation strategies using an interactive platform incorporating multiple agent-based simulation modules.
|Ongoing||Developing computational models of social practice theory|
Exploration of how to computationally conceptualise social practice theory.
|Ongoing||Methodology for developing agent based simulation in multi discilinary teams|
This long term project is to develop a methodology and supporting tools to assist planners, policy makers, and social scientists assisting them, in using agent based simulation technology to better understand the complex systems they are working with.
|Ongoing||Modelling humans in agent based simulation systems|
This project is working on incorporating better models of human behaviour in agent based simulation systems.
|Ongoing||Supporting participatory modelling|
Exploring ways to support participatory modelling.
