Welcome to the Computational Social Science community at the University of Michigan School of Information

The University of Michigan School of Information (UMSI) is home to a vibrant community of faculty and PhD students in the area of computational social science. Our research collectively encompasses a wide scope of areas, from social networks to language to political action to theory—and more! We combine cutting-edge methodologies with theory-driven investigation to understand human behavior in its many facets.

Our community works on a diverse set of research problems and see our people page for summaries of what each faculty member is working on or check out our publications page for what we’ve been up lately. If you’re around U-M, come hear talks by current students, faculty, and invited speakers during our weekly seminar.

The Computational Social Science community is a part of the School of Information at the University of Michigan, where we frequently collaborate with other faculty and students. Our research (and faculty) often overlap with resarch groups such as the Michigan Interactive and Social Computing (MISC) group. We also collaborate broadly within the Unversity of Michgan with colleagues in Computer Science, Political Science, Communications, Psychology, and the School of Public Health, among others.
