Gerard P. Learmonth, Sr.
Gerard P. Learmonth Sr. is a professor in the UVA Data Science Institute. His work involves the modeling and simulation of large, global environmental, economic, and social challenges. These comprehensive, data-driven simulation models may be linked with role-playing interfaces to create serious games for collaborative learning. Current efforts include the design and development of the Greater Bay Area Game in collaboration with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and a simulation model to assess the efficacy of policies to address the opioid crisis. Previous efforts include the Global Food Security Game; a prototype Louisiana Coastal Resilience Game; the Global Sustainable Supply Chain Game; and the UVA Bay Game®. A UVA Center for Global Health Faculty Fellow, Gerard holds a master of science in operations research and a Ph.D. in statistics and management science.
