I started my PhD in october 2019 on the topic of developing social behavior for agent-based social simulations. Currently I'm working on context-sensitive deliberation for those agents, where context can not only influence the choices made but also the type of deliberation used.

A big project I worked on with the research group is the Agent-based Social Simulation of the Coronavirus Crisis (ASSOCC) project. Furthermore I worked on a social simulation about illegal supply chains with concepts of trust and risk. And during my master thesis we worked on a fishing village with agents that behaved based on their values.
