Petr Matous

Dr. Petr Matous has been organising experimental interventions and social surveys in diverse communities across Asia and Africa to empirically elucidate the role of social networks in contexts constrained by limited resources or environmental disasters. Dr Matous applies novel statistical methods to these unique data sets to model the mechanisms of dynamic interactions between interpersonal or inter-organisational networks and their technological and natural environment.
