I am a Senior Lecturer in the Management and Organizations Department at the Kellogg School of Management and a Senior Research Associate at the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO). I developed and teach the Kellogg course Social Dynamics and Networks, and I also teach the MEDS core course Decision Making Under Uncertainty. You can learn more about me, my teaching, and my research at my Kellogg web page.
About the Blog
This is a blog about social interactions. When people interact and influence one another’s choices, the resulting macro level dynamics can be complex, astounding, horrific, and/or beautiful. In my research, I use modeling to try and understand how social interactions give rise to this astounding diversity of phenomena. The blog is a place for me to make more casual observations about social dynamics in the news, in my research, in other people’s research, and in everyday life.
