Here you will find a series of papers that do not fit any other research areas. With time, I may place some of this work into its own category as it develops further.

## Using agentization for exploring firm and labor dynamics

Published on: 2011This was our first attempt to understand the overlap between neoclassical economic models and agent-computing ones. In this particular study, we demonstrate how to generalised a well-known neoclassical model of firm dynamics to gradually turn it into an agent-computing model that is capable of generating a broader set of statistical regularities without the need of assumptions such as equilibrium.

## A method for emerging empirical age structures in agent-based models with exogenous survival probabilities

Published on: 2023This work was inspired by a problem faced by policymaking users of agent-based models: how to generate the empirical age distribution in a model with a constant steady-state population. Traditional methods such as survival probability imputation do not work because the assumed statistical model used to estimate those probabilities differs from the agent-based one. Here, we develop a methodology to estimate the correct survival probabilities and generate a large variety of age distributions.

## The climate security index

Published on: 2022In a collaboration with CGIAR, we developed a new framework to assess the climate security risk of a country. The aim is to bring together ideas from different fields to build a holistic framework.

## Methodological note for the climate and security index

Published on: 2023This is the formal presentation of the climate security index framework. We bring together ideas and methods from conflict analysis, complex systems, signal processing, and public governance to build a novel method.
