Charles (Chick) Macal

Charles (Chick) Macal is a senior systems engineer at Argonne National Laboratory. He specializes in a type of computer simulation called agent-based modeling, which calculates likely decisions for each "actor"— one person, for example—in a simulation and then sees what impact those have on other agents. He has applied agent-based modeling to simulate the spread of MRSA bacteria, to forecast economic panics and to predict consumer behavior, among other projects.
