Bringing together knowledge from social psychology and pedestrian modelling: moving towards evidence-based models of collective behaviour 

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

Both social psychologists and pedestrian modellers can offer important knowledge about collective behaviour, yet their collaboration is limited. When collaboration does occur, interdisciplinary research teams face challenges such as boiling down complex theory into manageable code, designing experiments that can inform the creation and testing of models, and ensuring the work produced meets the conventional standards of each research field. In this talk, I set out ways interdisciplinary teams can work together to harness theoretical and methodological knowledge in social psychology and pedestrian modelling to create evidence-based models and advance our knowledge of collective behaviour.
