Research

The NEtwoRks, Data, and Society (NERDS) group is researching network and data science applications to social systems. NERDS consists of interdisciplinary researchers who focus on quantitative projects at the boundary of network science, data science, and computational social science, including science of science, social networks and dynamics, multiplex networks, science of success, urban sustainability, human mobility, data visualization, and fundamental questions in complex systems.
