Scott Moss is Professor of Social Simulation and the director of the Centre for Policy Modelling in the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School. His research focuses on the development of methodologies and techniques for computational modelling of social and other complex systems. Currently he is working in social science on modelling the interaction between social and natural systems in order to inform public policies for the mitigation of the effects of climate change. He is working in computer science on agent and mechanism design for scalable software systems using social simulation techniques. He has published two books trying to point out to economists how they might do good science (he failed). Other (co-edited) books concern applications of distributed artificial intelligence to social science and conversely. He has published numerous papers on economic theory, history and methodology and, more recently, on social simulation software and methodologies applied to organizations, robotics, drinking, transition economies, intermediated markets and water demand management.
