Networks offer a framework that combines local interactions within large interconnected populations.
Cambridge economists working on networks constitute one of the strongest cluster of researchers in this field, anywhere in the world. The group is distinctive its broad expertise that covers theory, experiments (field, laboratory and online) and statistical analyses with Big Data.
