Hi. I’m Wolf. I’m the Argelander (Tenure-Track Assistant) Professor for Integrated System Modeling for Sustainability Transitions at the University of Bonn, Germany.

I strive to reshape human-environment modeling to identify critical leverage points for sustainability transitions. Cooperation at scale – in which large collectives of intelligent actors in complex environments seek ways to improve their joint well-being – is critical for a sustainable future, yet unresolved. To move forward with this challenge, I develop mathematical models of collective learning, bridging ideas from complex systems science, multi-agent reinforcement learning, and social-ecological resilience.

Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions or comments and especially if you want to join forces.
