Christian Luhmann holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Northeastern University and a Ph.D. in Psychology from Vanderbilt University. He is currently an Associate Professor in Stony Brook University's Department of Psychology and an affiliate of the Institute for Advanced Computational Science and the Center for Behavioral Political Economy. His interdisciplinary background leads him to take a uniquely computational approach to behavioral science, seeking to formulate and evaluate formal theories of human behavior.  Much of his work has been undertaken within the field of behavioral economics, quantitatively characterizing how human decisions trade off monetary outcomes against dimensions such as uncertainty and delay. His more recent work has begun to investigate complex behavioral at scale, including processes such as social influence and the diffusion of information. He has also taken computational approaches to neuroscientific data (e.g., e lectroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging) . His computational work has employed a variety techniques, including agent-based simulation, approximate Bayesian inference, machine learning, and network theory.
