Aims to develop agent-centric models for simulating crowd dynamics that challenge foundational assumptions in crowd modeling, while providing solutions that are validated using comparisons to real data, and virtual reality experiments. These solutions can be used to optimize the behavioral dynamics of real crowds and model the relationships between crowd flow and environment features, with applications in predictive analytics and crowd management, and environment layout design. His other research interests include real-time multi-agent planning, character animation for autonomous virtual humans, and digital storytelling.
