Short Profile:

Steffen Fürst studied mathematics with a focus on economics and social science at the Technical University of Darmstadt. As a diploma thesis, he developed an agent-based model on pricing and technological change. He joined the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in 2007 where he implemented the Lagom modeG model and improved the MASON Java Framework. Since 2012, he is a researcher at GCF. His current interest is agent-based computational modelling and interactive data visualisation with a focus on computer science. In the Centre of Excellence for Global Systems Science (CoeGSS), he worked on the pilot studies and on methods and tools, in particular with a concept for a graph-based ABM framework and with a tool for quick interactive visualisation. He is also involved in the development of the visualisation used in the Decision Theatre events.
