What is the Polarization Lab?

We are a team of social scientists, computer scientists, and statisticians who study how technology shapes political tribalism.


Our mission is two-fold. First, we aim to produce the highest quality research about how social media shapes political polarization, drawing upon the latest advances in social psychology, political science, and machine learning. You can learn more about our research here.

Second, we aim to translate the insights from our research into tools that people can use to hack political polarization from the bottom up. You can try our tools here.

We work closely with other groups working to counter political polarization in the non-profit sector, private sector, and governments. 

Join our mailing list to learn more about our work and keep up to date on the latest tools we build.
