Modeling & Simulation

Columbia engineers have used models to assess everything from how atomic-level structures yield material behavior to how much online retailers can both reduce inventory costs and offer lower-priced goods to consumers. Such tools can be used to inform policy and encourage better business practices, while directing awareness toward patterns that lead to more desirable outcomes in a variety of fields.

Simulation allows us to explore the behavior of systems in a wide range of circumstances where actual experimentation is impossible, undesirable, or prohibitively expensive. Our work with simulations addresses a host of research areas, including better risk management for buildings and infrastructure to models of seasonal cycles in the Amazon that impact climate change.
