Barry Silverman, PhD, researches systems engineering applied to socio-technical systems. Using descriptive rather than normative approaches, Barry merges best-of-breed models such as human physiology, stress, emotion, personality, and relations, as well as cultural, political, and economic factors, into a unified framework for agent-based simulations of health care, well-being and ethno-political situations around the world. Barry uses these models to simulate daily life and factional conflicts and drive role playing games and interactive dramas, with the goal of exposing the need for research in computational social science.
