Testimonials

Empirically calibrated agent-based modelling offers a powerful tool for future research, but it does require more computational power than traditional methodologies used in school choice/segregation research. Fortunately, the efforts Jisk Attema and Ji Qi from the eScience centre effectively helped us improving code efficiency.
