Dr Umberto Gostoli

  • Research Associate (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)

Biography

Dr. Umberto Gostoli joined the Complexity Programme at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in October 2017. He obtained an MSc in European Studies at the London School of Economics and a PhD in Economics at the University of Bologna. After his PhD studies, he started to work as a post-doctoral researcher at the Polytechnic University of Marche, in Italy. Before joining the Unit he worked as a researcher in various international universities, among which the University of Southampton, the University of Manchester and the National Chengchi University, in Taiwan.

As part of the Complexity in Health Improvement programme and the Complex Systems Science workstream, he develops agent-based models (ABM) of socio-economic systems to improve our understanding of how demographic, social and economic factors interact to determine trends in public health.
