Welcome to my website
My name is Torsten Heinrich; I am currently a researcher at the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) at the Oxford Martin School of the University of Oxford
. My work is concentrated methodologically in the fields of agent-based modelling, game theory, complexity economics and evolutionary economics, but I also do empirical work on industrial organization and technological change among other areas. I also have an interest in new technologies, in the potential they create, and in economic, social and political consequences their implementation could entail.
I studied economics at the Dresden University of Technology (Dresden, Germany) and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Madrid, Spain) graduating in 2007. I received my PhD from the University of Bremen, Germany, in 2011 with a thesis on technological change and growth patterns in the presence of network effects. Working on complexity systems, agent-based modeling, simulation and strategic games in economics, I edited special issues in scientific journals and authored both journal articles and monographs. I hold a post-doc position at the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) at the University of Oxford, UK, and teach at the University of Bremen, Germany.
I contribute to a few open source software projects, most notably the Economic Simulation Library.
