Applying mathematical modeling techniques as as well as statistical tools to understand and possibly explain social and behavioral issues such as dropout, bullying, peer interactions in schools, crimes, etc.
Modeling of topics in areas such as social insects and epidemiology.
My interests lie in Mathematical Biology and Epidiomiology. Other things like Agent-based Modeling are also of interest to me.
Joffa's interests are in modeling an interdisciplinary mix of theory of the firm, political economy, institutional and policy analysis, and participatory governance.
Joffa is working toward developing a theory of firms as an ecological system comprised of for profit, non-profit and other NGO and hybrid constructs, focusing on the interplay of capital access, infrastructure, governance and employment. She believes that a healthy firm ecology will be dynamic, robust and diverse, leading to increased productivity, well-being and engagement.
Her focus is on applying dynamic and agent based modeling techniques to understand and explain how firms form and interact and the degree to which institutional arrangements support that activity, as well as how to develop and communicate these models to enhance decision making.
