Connecting different disciplines is fascinating. The various perspectives are complementary and many times a problem in one discipline is solved by insights in the other. More than that, we can accelerate our understanding and problem-solving.

In our current project, we research modelling social interactions with an interest in bullying dynamics. I approach the subject by combining knowledge from social sciences, psychology, neuroscience, neurolinguistics and the social simulation community. The biggest challenge in an interdisciplinary group is communication. Modelling as a tool forces different researchers into stating their insights explicitly. This is because a concept, in a model, is directly linked to actions. Each discipline has a different language and we need to ensure that when we assign the same meaning to concepts. To tackle communication issues, we have assigned part of the project in researching the transformation of concepts into programming languages using formal methods.
