Welcome to the Centre for Mathematical Social Sciences (CMSS).

We are a group of researchers interested in applying mathematical and computational modelling to social sciences (particularly social choice and economics), centred at the University of Auckland, but with members also from Auckland University of Technology and Massey University.

The CMSS is a transdisciplinary research centre with members from fields, including mathematics, economics, computer science, philosophy, and statistics.  Research covers areas such as decision-making, social choice, voting, social networks, game theory, and experimental economics. The Centre also focuses on climate change negotiations and ethical considerations in decision-making, providing opportunities for PhD students.
