Te Pūnaha Matatini
Te Pūnaha Matatini – ‘the meeting place of many faces’ – is a Centre of Research Excellence that will develop methods and approaches for transforming complex data about New Zealand’s environment, economy, and society into knowledge, tools, and insight for making better decisions.
The purpose of Te Pūnaha Matatini is to bring together New Zealand’s leading researchers in physics, economics, mathematics, biology, computer science, operations management, statistics, and social science to study complex systems and networks.
Our research is focussed upon three complementary themes:
- Complex Data Analytics
- Complexity and the Economy
- Complexity and the Biosphere
Te Pūnaha Matatini is hosted by the University of Auckland, in partnership with the University of Canterbury, Motu Economic and Public Policy Research, Victoria University of Wellington and Massey University.
