Zach is a second-year Ph.D. student working with Professor Chris Riedl as part of the CSS Lab. Zach is primarily interested in the intersection of complex systems modeling with economics, and is currently working on projects investigating the outcome of games on evolving networks and human search behavior. He hopes to create simple economic models that can advise policy decisions using a networks and agent-based approach.
