Nigel Gilbert is a Professor of Sociology at the University of Surrey and has a special interest in computational social science. He was one of the first social scientists to use agent-based models, in the early 1990s, and has since published widely on the methodology underlying computer modelling, on basic issues in social science that can be addressed effectively using such models, and on the value of simulation for applied problems such as understanding commercial innovation and managing environmental resources. Professor Gilbert is also interested in the sociology of scientific knowledge and in complexity science.
