Welcome to the Social Dynamics Laboratory

The Social Dynamics Laboratory members study the interplay between network topology and the dynamics of social interaction, using computational models, data from on-line networks, and laboratory experiments with human participants.

We are supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the MINERVA Initiative.

The SDL Director is Michael Macy, Goldwin Smith Professor of Arts and Sciences at Cornell University, with a joint appointment in the Department of Sociology and the Department of Information Science.

The Assistant Director is Chris Cameron, a PhD candidate at Cornell.
