Misha Teplitskiy’s research focuses on the role of institutions in scientific discovery. One branch of work studies how scientific organizations evaluate and select research projects to invest into.  Another branch studies how scientists communicate ideas to one another and the general public, and how these flows are shaped by status, culture, location, and technology. Methodologically, he employs a variety of tools from the computational social science toolkit, especially field experiments and quantitative analysis of administrative data.
