Faculty Associate, CPS
Professor, LSA Political Science
Professor, LSA Complex Systems
Scott Page directs or helps direct three large projects at the University of Michigan. He is the principal investigator for the IDEAS NSF IGERT grant, a principal investigator for Project SLUCE, and NSF bio-complexity grant, and the director of Project Diversity, an interdisciplinary effort to understand the theoretical implications of diversity that is funded by the James S. McDonnell Foundation and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching. Scott belongs to several research teams, including the MacArthur Foundation's working group on economic inequality and social interactions.
In addition to his academic pursuits, Scott frequently gives talks on complex systems to non academic audiences on diversity and on complexity and has consulted on projects ranging from the possibility of panic at Y2K and the demand for movies, to the economic impact of the World Cup.
