The Computational Psychology Lab is located at the Graduate Center, the City University of New York.

Embracing cutting-edge quantitative methods and computational models, our lab is striving to advance our understanding of questions in psychological, managerial, and educational areas.

Our Lab is currently conducting research around three themes: 1) social networks, 2) applied psychometrics, and 3) big data analytics and technology.
