Milena Tsvetkova's research interests lie in the fields of computational and experimental social science. She uses online experiments, agent-based models, network analysis, and game theory to study cooperation, contagion, and inequality in large social groups.
In 2015, Milena completed her PhD in Sociology at Cornell University, where she worked under the supervision of Prof. Michael W. Macy. Her dissertation used online and computational experiments to investigate the contagion of prosocial and antisocial behaviour among strangers.
Milena also holds a Master of Science in Sociology and Social Research from Utrecht University and a Master of Arts in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago. She completed her Bachelor's degree in Architecture Design at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
