Bridging quantitative social science research and practical social innovation.
Our mission is to bridge research and practice.
Our center translates a real-world problem from the community into a set of quantitative research questions and engages experts across disciplines to solve them. Through coordination, we help each team produce outputs that are both publishable in their field and can be used by another team. We then integrate these disparate findings into a solution for the community.

We're proud of our affiliate and funding partnerships, which help enable this research.
How can economics and institutional design solve real-world problems?
How can computational approaches help address the limitations of the economic approach?
Join us as we learn how mechanism design ("reverse game theory") is relevant to public policy and why bridging research and practice in this field leads us to the intersection between economics and computer science. Familiarity with mathematical notation is helpful, but no previous knowledge in either economics or CS is expected.
