Dr Corinna Elsenbroich

  • Reader of Computational Modelling in Social and Public Health Science (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)

Biography

Corinna is a Reader in Computational Modelling in Public Health and part of the Systems Science in Public Health Programme at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit.

Corinna Elsenbroich is a complexity social scientist interested in methodological and epistemological aspects of novel methods, in particular computational methods such as agent-based modelling, and has published on aspects of ontology, explanatory power and context validity in modelling. As a computational modeller she has developed models of dynamic social networks of juvenile delinquency, neighbourhood effects of extortion racketeering and collective reasoning in social dilemma situations. She is particularly interested in complexity sensitive social science methods, comprising computational, case based and participatory methods. She is currently working on how to combine methods through novel research designs. 

As a co-investigator in the Centre for Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN) and a co-director of the System science In Public Health and health Economics Research (SIPHER) she is involved with developing these methods in a policy relevant way.
