Gary Polhill

Gary Polhill did a degree in Artificial Intelligence and a PhD in Neural Networks before spending 18 months in industry as a professional programmer. Since 1997 he has been working at the Macaulay Institute on agent-based modelling of land use and related systems. He is interested in complex systems, social dilemmas, spatially-explicit modelling, and best practice in agent-based modelling, programming and design.

Luis Izquierdo

Luis R. Izquierdo is trained in Industrial Engineering, Business and Economics. He has been working as an agent-based modeller in the Macaulay Institute since July 2002. He is also doing a part-time PhD, supervised by Nick Gotts and Bruce Edmonds. The title of his PhD thesis is 'Assessing Factors that Promote Cooperation in Common-Pool Resource Dilemmas'. He is interested in social dilemmas, agent-based modelling, game theory and the use of models in general.

Nick Gotts

Nick Gotts trained in psychology and artificial intelligence. Until 1996, his research was mainly concerned with qualitative spatial representation and reasoning in humans, other animals, and computers. Since then he has concentrated on complex systems dynamics, particularly on cellular automata, and on agent-based social simulation. Since July 1998 he has been designing and experimenting with agent-based models of land use and water management at the Macaulay Institute, and is particularly interested in ways of comparing agent-based models, and in the relationships between analysis and simulation in the study of complex systems.
