The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University has named 37 scholars and practitioners to its 2023-24 fellows class. The scholars represent 22 U.S. institutions and nine international institutions and programs. The 2023-24 class will arrive in early September, at about the same time the center’s next director, Sarah Soule, will take office.

Some additional fellows may join the roster in the coming months.

Members of the 2023-24 class conduct research in a variety of fields in the social and behavioral sciences and cognate disciplines, including anthropology, architecture, communication, economics, education, history, information science, law, medicine, organization studies, philosophy, political science, psychology, public health, sociology, and urban studies and planning.

“The center’s annual renewal of its intellectual community is always an anticipated occurrence, even more so this year with the arrival of a new director,” said Sally Schroeder, CASBS’s deputy director. “Accordingly, we worked hard to set the bar of excellence as high as it has ever been and attract interest from some of the world’s most innovative social and behavioral scientists.”

Several fellows are funded by some of the center’s partner fellowship programs:

  • Stanford-Taiwan Social Science Fellow Thung-Hong Lin supported by the Science and Technology Policy Research and Information Center within the National Applied Research Laboratories of Taiwan
  • Chinese University of Hong Kong-Stanford University CASBS Fellows Peter Ferretto, Michelle Miao
  • National University of Singapore Fellow Ivan Png
  • Curriculum Open-access Resources in Economics Fellow Mary Lopez. CORE is an open-access economics project governed by CORE Econ with a mission to reform the teaching of economics. At CASBS, that mission goes forward through the enCOREage project.
  • William T. Grant Scholars Program Fellow Emily Penner

In addition to fellows, CASBS has three other appointment designations: visiting scholars (academics who are spouses/partners of fellows), research affiliates (non-Stanford scholars who lead CASBS-based research projects), and faculty fellows (Stanford faculty who lead CASBS-based research projects). The center will finalize these appointments by late spring or summer.
