Last week, professor Greg Kiker and his PhD student Tori Morgan from the University of Florida (UF) visited us in Hamburg. The purpose of this visit was to deepen the partnership in ecological agent-based modelling, that exists since 2012.
Prof. Kiker is currently working on a research paper that compares the QND simulation system with MARS. Also, there are plans to use the MARS simulation system for educational purposes at the UF.
Tori Morgan recently started her studies on an agent-based model for simulating human and ecological exposure to mercury from informal gold mining activities in Columbia.
