You are cordially invited to our workshop Modelling & Simulation Methods: Method overview and modelling process held by Nikolas Popper.


Room: VISUS building Allmandring 19, seminar room 00.012
Time: Thursday, 21 March 09.00 am – 12.30 pm



Nikolas “Niki” Popper studied Mathematics, Philosophy and Jazz Theory in Vienna, Barcelona, Catalonia (Spain) and Moscow, Idaho (US) and received his ScD (Dr.techn.) at TU Wien. Niki Popper published and presented about 150 articles and talks in journals and at international conferences. He is coordinator of COCOS “Centre for Computational Complex Systems” at TU Wien as well as chairman of DEXHELPP, the COMET K-Project (Decision Support for Health Policy and Planning: Methods, Models and Technologies based on Existing Health Care Data), which is dedicated to the development models and to efficient and safe use of data for decision making in health systems. His main research interests are theory and applications of modelling & simulation of dynamic and complex systems, especially: comparative modelling & simulation; coupling and comparison of mathematical model approaches; development of new modelling methods; implementation, parametrization, calibration and validation concepts and domain and application integration of simulation models like health system research and model based HTA (Health Technology Assessment). He co-invented the award winning Master College for Applied Modelling, Simulation and Decision Making at TU Wien and the award winning blended learning courses in basic maths at the same university. He worked as science editor and journalist and co-founded two successful companies, the production company drahtwarenhandlung for scientific films, data journalism and computer animation and the R&D company dwh GmbH for technical solutions and simulation services, dedicated to develop new and innovative pipelines from the basic idea for a data driven analysis up to a ready for market solution. Niki Popper is married and is father of two children.
