I am interested in quantitative research within the social sciences, including evolutionary game theory, quantitative finance, population genetics, etc. My recent research has focused on building quantitative frameworks in the social science domains of economics, management, and politics, and justifying the rigorous scientific foundation of economics theory and marketing research via complex interacting systems.
I hold a PhD from Bonn University and spent time as a research fellow at UC Berkeley, before taking up a research and teaching position at Oxford. I am a visiting professor at China Youth University of Political Science and Fudan University. At Regent’s Park, I direct the OPGDC, an interdisciplinary centre established to facilitate collaboration between researchers, practitioners and policy-makers in China and the UK.
