My research often involves the exploration of formal models. Bellow are some of the computational models I’ve made, either for research or for play.
This model explores how social networks, in tandem with conformity bias, can influence the flow and reliability of information in inquiry.
The Moran process is the main stochastic model of evolutionary games. This model allows one to examine evolving populations whose interaction structures are given by 2×2 symmetric games.
This model explores how a social network might self-assemble from the ritualization of the decisions of individual agents.
This model demonstrates an essential tension between rationality and prediction, and how to resolve it.
This model explore the way that individual confirmation bias along with selective or distorted representations of events by the news media can lead to individual belief polarization.
