I’m Tom Fiddaman. I build and use mathematical models for a living. I’m interested in dynamic modeling methods and software, particularly applications in climate and energy policy. I’ve worked on a wide range of topics in public policy and business strategy, including climate, energy, beverage sales, B2B emarkets, hedge funds, pharmaceuticals, pork and dairy commodity cycles, fisheries, and large project management.
I work for Ventana Systems with the Vensim and Ventity teams.

Hello again, Tom
I tinkered a bit more on the “polarisation” issue, and would love to share the result with you.
What email address can I use to send you the vensim file?
Cool. You can send it to tom at this domain. I’m at the SD conference so it might be a while before I can respond.
HI, I am on the faculty at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and teach courses on operations management. I saw your system dynamics model on the spread of Covid. It is terrific. I welcome a conversation about the model if you have interest and availability.
