Utilizing Agent-Based Modeling (ABM)

Contact Information



Ryan's research focuses on utilizing agent-based modeling (ABM) in observing behavioral decisions that water consumers make either individually or within a community. This includes monitoring how household and environmental parameters affect an area's water consumption, but also the influence from decisions made by public officials and the social structure of a community. Ryan is applying this method to a reward and punish management action style used in controlling the use of natural resources by a population.
