I'm interested in relationships between human decision-making and emergent group-level behavior, and in understanding the structure and dynamics of processes through which social patterns emerge. I approach these questions by studying group-level behavior in online multiplayer games and feedback loops between diet and hierarchy among prehistoric human groups. Understanding how groups emerge gives us insight into how societies form, and into the dynamics behind other complex systems as well.
