Center for the Dynamics of Social Complexity (DySoC)

The goal of the Center is to promote connections and collaborations between researchers investigating various aspects and levels of human social behavior. We use theoretical and empirical methods and work at the interface of mathematical, data, biological, social, and computational sciences. Our topics of interest include cooperation, conflict, cultural evolution and dynamics, mass behavior and psychology, human origins, emergence and evolution of human societies, social norms, and societal resilience and (in) stability to various shocks. We are interested in combining system thinking, modeling tools, and big data to develop testable predictions and practical agendas.
