Real life social networks - their reach, and how they've evolved to affect every aspect of our day to day lives with Matthew O. Jackson. He is the Eberle Professor of Economics at Stanford University, an external faculty member of the Santa Fe Institute and a Senior Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and a former Guggenheim Fellow.. His research interests include game theory, microeconomic theory, and the study of social and economic networks, including diffusion, learning, and network formation. He is the author of many articles and books, including the book Social and Economic Networks. Professor Matthew Jackson is visiting New Zealand next week to give a public lecture about his work - about the diffusion of information and the role social networks play in that.
