Flaminio Squazzoni is associate professor of economic sociology at the University of Brescia, where he leads the GECS-Research Group on Experimental and Computational Sociology

He is Director of the NASP ESLS PhD Programme in Economic Sociology and Labour Studies (October 2015-)

He is President of the European Social Simulation Association (Sept 2012/Sept 2016), editor of JASSS-Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, member of the editorial boards of Research Integrity and Peer Review, Sociologica and Sistemi Intelligenti and advisory editor of the Wiley Series in Computational and Quantitative Social Science and the Springer Series in Computational Social Science.

His fields of research are agent-based computational sociology, the sociology of markets and peer review. In particular, he is interested to investigate the relevance of social norms and institutions for socio-economic systems' behaviour by integrating experimental and agent-based computational research.

He published articles on the following journals: Social Networks, PLoS ONE, Research Policy, Journal of Informetrics, JASSS, Social Science Computer Review, Complexity, Revue Française de Sociologie, Journal of Applied Mathematics, WIREs Computational Statistics, Higher Education, Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Journal of Socio-Economics, Sociological Research Online, History of Economic Ideas, Mind & Society, Community Development Journal, Sociologica, Journal of Financial Management, Markets and Institutions, Stato & Mercato, Rassegna Italiana di Sociologia, L'Industria and Sistemi Intelligenti.
