The Research Group in Network Science is an interdisciplinary group of researchers composed of early- and mid-career scholars in the Social Science Division at New York University Abu Dhabi. Currently, the group houses approximately a dozen participants from Economics, Political Science, and Social Research and Public Policy.
The research group has breadth in terms of substantive areas, ranging from neighborhood segregation, to boundary conditions of diffusion, to trust and betrayal, to firm networks. In spite of our substantive breadth, we all focus on research questions in which network dynamics and relational processes are at the heart of the analysis.
Given our shared interests, the group began meeting bi-weekly in the fall of 2017 to discuss each of our respective network-related research projects as well as network science at-large.
