NOVA: A Novel Tool for Collaborative Agent-Based and Dynamic Systems Modeling
Solving complex problems requires teams of people who bring different skills and expertise to the table. Interdisciplinary collaboration requires its own skillset. Not only do people working in different disciplines often use different vocabularies, they may have different paradigms for understanding and producing knowledge and different priorities about what they believe is practical, important or necessary in attacking a problem. Finally, people in different fields may work at different levels of analysis. For instance, infant malnutrition can be approached as a cellular-level problem in terms of food consumption and composition, as a dyadic problem of feeding in the parent-infant relationship.
