Afshin Jafari

Afshin Jafari is a postgraduate researcher with Healthy Liveable Cities group at RMIT University

Afshin’s research interest includes using computational approaches such as agent-based simulation, data mining, game theory and network analysis to study complex systems, with focus on cities and urban systems. During his Master’s research at the University of Tehran, Afshin gained some valuable experiences in complexity science and simulation and developed a keen interest to continue his research as a computational social scientist.

Following his research interests, Afshin joined Healthy Liveable Cities group as a PhD student to work on using an activity-based agent-based modelling approach to study active transport in urban systems and how city planning changes will affect people’s active transport behaviour.
