Brian Castellani

Professor of Sociology, FAcSS, Durham University

I am a member of the COVID-19 Health and Social Care Modelling team, as well as a professor of sociology at Durham University and and adjunct professor of psychiatry at Northeastern Ohio Medical University. I am also one of the leads for the Health and Social Theory research group at Durham University, and I am Co-I for the Centre for the Study of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN). In terms of services, I am co-editor of the International Journal of Social Research Methodology and also the Routledge Complexity in Social Science monograph series.

My research involves advancing the tools of social complexity theory and computational social science for the study of various public health issues, including community and population health, cognition and air quality, indices of multiple deprivation and critical infrastructure, and the complex links between collective psychology, politics and public policy.
