Agent-based Modeling Workshop

With funding from the Society for Community Research and Action and the Michigan State University psychology department, I designed a one-day comprehensive introduction to agent-based modeling (ABM) with Dr. Zachary Neal. This workshop covers the epistemology of ABM, the modeling process, introduces participants to simple, free modeling software, and gives everyone a chance to apply their new skills and build a model during the workshop.
