Computational social sciences, complex systems, sustainability sciences

Full-time researcher at the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Systems Research (IIMAS) at UNAM, in Yucatán, México. Mario has a background in Anthropology and a PhD in Philosophy of Biology. He collaborates with researchers from the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University, Institute of Developmental Studies and STEPS Centre at Sussex University and the BeAnotherLab independent research project. Mario is a member and founder of the Transdisciplinarity, Art and Cognition (TACo) Collective. For the last three years, he has been co-organising the ALife & Society Special Session as part of the ALife conference.

His most recent work focuses on issues of sustainability and socio-ecological systems. In particular, he is interested in the role of affectivity in the sense of agency linked to socio-ecological problems. To this end, he works on the articulation of different quantitative tools such as complex network analysis, and qualitative tools such as in-depth interviews.
