I am a postgraduate student in the Complex Systems Simulation Doctoral Training Centre, and my interests lie in attempting to harness the power of simulation to help identify causal mechanisms in the social world. In particular, I am interested in how agent-based models can be used to simulate and makes inferences about demographic phenomena.
