The Computational culture lab
We harness computational methods and data science to develop novel ways of unearthing and systematically measuring culture and modeling its evolution. Our work opens new pathways for theorizing about cultural dynamics in social groups and, at the same time, lays the foundation for practical applications that may be of use for policy development and organizational design.
Although our recent work has focused on modeling culture in formal organizations,
our interests extend to domains as varied as politics, consumption, and collective behavior.
Our lab virtually spans the San Francisco Bay, with one leg at Stanford University
and the other at the University of California, Berkeley.
