William Schueller

PostDoc at the CSH

William Schueller is a PostDoc at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna, studying credit attribution models in collaborative creative processes.


William studied physics at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon, with a master thesis focusing on ant behavior models. After teaching maths and physics for two years at Galatasaray University in Istanbul, Turkey, William did his PhD in computer science at Inria Bordeaux, France, including an extended stay at Universita Sapienza di Roma to work with Vittorio Loreto.


In his PhD, William introduced active learning mechanisms in multi-agent models, and showed that they can represent a key feature in controlling local complexity growth. A small user experiment in the form of an online game showed that human behavior may follow such rules.


William’s research interests include multi-agent models, collaborative creativity, social insect behavior and language evolution.
