Crowd Innovations Lab
Misha Teplitskiy is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Crowd Innovation Lab at Harvard University. Misha's research interests include computational social science, science policy, sociology of organizations, and the sociology/economics of science. Misha received a BS in Physics at Rice University and a PhD in Sociology at the University of Chicago, where he worked at KnowledgeLab to identify how the evaluative cultures of scientific communities affect the outputs of those communities. That work focused on manuscript peer review in sociology and neuroscience in order to understand how existing knowledge and taste drive review decisions and the consequences these decisions have for the impact and reproducibility of scientific literatures. In Chicago, Misha also participated as a Fellow in the Data Science for Social Good Fellowship.
Currently, Misha is designing a survey and a field experiment around the general question of "How should the scientific community identify high-impact investment opportunities?" This project will measure and evaluate the scientific intuition of active researchers.
