New institute will advance the interdisciplinary study of networks

Yale will establish an Institute of Network Science to bring together researchers from many disciplines to advance the study of networks, President-Elect Peter Salovey announced April 11. "The study of networks is dramatically transforming many academic fields and practices,” Salovey said. “The Yale Institute of Network Science (YINS) will be a novel collaboration of faculty from the sciences that explore and contribute to this exciting new interdisciplinary field of knowledge.” YINS will be co-directed by Daniel A. Spielman, the Henry Ford II Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics, and sociologist and physician Dr. Nicholas A. Christakis, who will be joining the Yale faculty this summer.
