Assistant Professor of Political Science, Stony Brook University (The State University of New York)

Peter DeScioli's research investigates how the human mind uses principles of strategy to solve problems in the social world. He also studies how people form alliances, how they choose their loyalties to others and how they display and conceal their loyalties.

In recent years, DeScioli has been designing online games for experiments about politics, including redistribution of wealth, social safety nets, alliance formation, and political negotiation.
