Michael Macy is the Goldwin-Smith Professor of Sociology at Cornell University. In a series of studies funded by the National Science Foun- dation, he has used computational models and laboratory experiments with human subjects to explore how local interactions might generate familiar but enigmatic social patterns, such as the emergence and collapse of trust, cooperation, fads, and false beliefs. He currently leads a team of social, information, and computer scientists who are using digital traces of computer-mediated interaction to study peer inﬂuence and diffusion in online networks.
