    Scott Page is the Leonid Huwicz Collegiate Professor of Complex Systems, Political Science, and Economics at the University of Michigan. Scott was recently renewed as an external faculty member of the Santa Fe Institute. In addition to his departmental appointment, Scott holds a position as a senior research scientist at the Institute for Social Research at Michigan.

    Scott directs or helps direct three large projects at the University of Michigan. He is the principal investigator for the IDEAS NSF IGERT grant, a principal investigator for Project SLUCE, and NSF bio-complexity grant, and the director of Project Diversity, an interdisciplinary effort to understand the theoretical implications of diversity that is funded by the James S. McDonnell Foundation and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching. Scott belongs to several research teams, including the MacArthur Foundation’s working group on economic inequality and social interactions.
