My research focuses on the role of social interactions and technology in the emergence of social order and in the collective confrontation of social dilemmas. I am particularly committed to the experimental study of cooperative behaviors (and related phenomena such as collective coordination, navigation, evacuation, resource sharing, etc.) as they manifest through interactions between people located within social networks. I am also studying hybrid systems of humans and machines, and in particular how the addition of artificial agents can help humans to help themselves.
