Eugenio Dante Suarez, Ph.D.
- Associate Professor , Finance and Decision Sciences
Suarez’s main research field is international finance, where he studies the integration of international financial markets, such as the relationship between American depositary receipts and their corresponding underlying stocks. This research is aimed at understanding how markets around the world interact with each other in this age of globalization. Other research areas include econometrics, European studies and Latin American business practices.
In the last seven years, Suarez has been conducting research in the nascent field of complex adaptive systems, exploring the way in which agents interact with each other and their environments to create the rich dynamics of innovation, evolution and adaptation we see in society. Suarez collaborates with computer scientists to create multi-leveled computer simulations of societies, cultural and political ideologies, trading economies and urban landscapes. The methodology developed for this research agenda is based on the description of contextualized agents that locally create the networks that give rise to institutions, law and order, efficient allocation of resources and economic development. These simulations are based on nonlinear models that would be intractable in the linear approach that had been previously used in the analysis of social systems, and allow for computational analysis and experimentation that would be impossible to achieve in the real world.
