Opinion dynamics in social networks

Professor Friederike Mengel
Department of Economics

"All day, every day we make decisions about what we do – from what we eat and where we shop to who we vote for and how we save our money. These decisions, although shaped by our own beliefs and opinions, are not formed in isolation. Instead they are influenced by others as we communicate within our social network and take other people’s experiences and opinions into account. Professor Mengel will discuss how we can analyse these opinion-making networks."

Annoyingly it clashes with the Brexit debate on campus :(

The two are not entirely unrelated...
