2019 - 2022
Funded by the Office of Naval Research through the Minerva Research Initiative, this project looks at three case studies - Greece, Colombia, and South Africa - to understand how to support social stability in communities receiving a massive influx of displaced persons.
Working with ethnographers at the University of Agder and social scientists at York University, we strive to develop tools and methodologies that capture the rich details of qualitative data while harnessing the power of computer simulations.
Simulation tools should be accessible to everyone without the burden of coding languages. This project develops platforms that people of all ages, abilities, and disciplines can use to think through real-world problems and engage in modeling and simulation. Learn more about ClouDES and Metaphr.
HEALTH DYNAMICS IN PROTRACTED REFUGEE SITUATIONS
This project explored the effects of protracted refugee status on chronic health conditions. Simulation models were generated from primary data collection in Greece and South America.
