Where do new things come from, and what do we do when we get them?

Simon DeDeo

April 4, 1:00-2:30PM

ISERP Conference Room (IAB 270B)

Lunch provided | RSVP required


Speaker Bio:

Simon DeDeo is an Assistant Professor in Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University, and External Professor at the Santa Fe Institute. He was previously affiliated with Complex Systems and the Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University.

Education:

PhD: Astrophysics, Princeton University
MA: Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Cambridge University
AB: Astrophysics, Harvard University

He has also held post-doctoral fellowships at the Institute for Physics and Mathematics of the Universe at the University of Tokyo and at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago.

Research:

At the Laboratory for Social Minds we undertake empirical investigations, and build mathematical theories, of both historical and contemporary phenomena. We range from the centuries-long timescales of cultural evolution to the second-by-second emergence of social hierarchy in the non-human animals, from the editors of Wikipedia to the French Revolution to the gas stations of Indiana. We create synthetic, deep-time accounts of major transitions in political order, with the goal of the predicting and understanding our species’ future. You can learn more about his research at his lab website.
