About Simon Lynch

Dr. Simon Lynch is a Principal Lecturer in the School of Computing. Simon has worked at the School for 25 years with breaks to work in Sri Lanka and in Botswana. Simon's interests include international development, artificial intelligence and complexity.

Simon's research investigates the activity of genetics, evolution, epidemiology and other naturally occurring systems that exhibit novel, emergent phenomena are not easily explained by traditional methods. His research addresses this through the production of animated, agent-based software models which visualise such emergent phenomena and the more general scientific principles which underpin their activity. This work currently reaches audiences through science centres, public engagement events and out-reach into schools and we are now seeking to extend the scope and the impact of this work.
