I am a social scientist specializing in complexity. I have written a book and several research papers on complex systems, and I regularly contribute articles to media outlets on (you guessed it!) complexity — plus data science, international relations, diversity, and uncertainty. I am also a standup comedian and circus performer. The whole thing is confusing, but basically I’ll do whatever it takes to get people to pay attention to social science & complexity. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
