Nigel Gilbert read for a first degree in Engineering, intending to go into the computer industry. However, he was lured into sociology and obtained his doctorate on the sociology of scientific knowledge from the University of Cambridge. His research and teaching interests have reflected his continuing interest in both sociology and computer science (and engineering more widely). Since 1998, he has also been Pro Vice-Chancellor for Staff Development at the University of Surrey. He is President of the European Social Simulation Association (ESSA) and Editor of JASSS.
