Teesside University will be recruiting another cohort of PhD students shortly, so a number of us will be looking for students interested in some ongoing research projects we’ve got going on here. I’ll post the link to the appropriate page once it goes up, but for now here’s a sneak preview:
Agent-based computational modelling for public health
As the UK population ages and demand for health and social care services continues to rise, new solutions are needed to better manage resources and plan for a challenging and uncertain future. This project will use agent-based computational models to unravel the complexities of health policy implementation and service delivery by modelling the multiple interacting processes underlying the health system. These models will investigate challenges in health and social care service delivery across a variety of spatial and temporal scales — from short-term studies of demands on accident and emergency services, to longer-term explorations of the pressures facing social care over the next several decades.
