Beyond The Optimising Agent – Summer School in Advanced Methods

Together with Rafael Wildauer (University of Greenwich), I’m organising a summer school in advanced methods for Economics and Political Economy. The school provides advanced training in methods that capture features such as uncertainty, instability, complexity, institutions, and historical change — from agent-based modelling to panel data methods, to case studies, and more. The focus is on methods that receive less attention in standard economics programmes but are essential to analyse real-world issues such as financial cycles, climate change, income and wealth inequality, etc. It covers both analytical foundations in the form of lectures as well as applications in the form of hands-on computer-lab exercises and interactive group work. Concrete applications illustrate how participants can apply these methods in their own research. The summer school is targeted at PhD students (or PGRs) and Early Career Researchers (up to 3 years since completion of PhD).
