Join us for a conversation with Thomas Nechyba, professor of Economics and Public Policy and director of the Duke Social Science Research Institute. Ed Balleisen, historian and Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies, will interview Dr. Nechyba. The conversation will focus on Nechyba’s role in building interdisciplinary intellectual communities at Duke, through such key developments as the move of SSRI to Gross Hall, the invention of Bass Connections, and the creation of a Master program in Interdisciplinary Data Science (MIDS).
