Károly Takács


Mitt forskningsintresse är den teoretiska, experimentella och empiriska analysen av dynamiken i sociala nätverk i relation till samarbetsproblem och konflikter.


För närvarande driver jag ERC-finansierade projektet EVILTONGUE om vilken roll skvaller och rykten har för att upprätthålla samarbete och sociala normer. 

Mer information om mig och min forskning finns också på min engelska medarbetarsida:
