Professor, Institute for Global Development and Social Planning at the University of Agder, Norway, and Scientific Director, Center for Modeling Social Systems. Shults, whose graduate training was in the  study of religion, has been collaborating with computer modelers to demonstrate the value of computer modeling and simulation for refining and testing theories and generating dynamic models of the processes studied by scholars in the humanities.  Shults has received numerous collaborative grants to advance this work and is one of four co-editors of a recently published volume, Human Simulation: Perspectives, Insights, and Applications (New Approaches to the Scientific Study of Religion).
