Our people are leaders in the fields of human genetics, sociology, mathematics, history, evolutionary biology, English literature and psychology, from the nations most prestigous institutions. About a third come from a computational modeling background who are interested in identifying and modeling knowledge generation and transmission processes. The remaining two thirds take the long view of science and scholarship and bring their expertise into meaningful conversations and research on topics that are of interest to them and to the Lab as a whole.
