WPI’s Laboratory for Complex Systems Analysis and Policy conducts original research at the interface of system dynamics computer simulation modeling, behavioral and experimental economics, and serious games. Members of the Lab apply these tools to problems in economic policy, business strategy, health care policy, litigation support, and leadership. In concert with input from the Lab’s corporate sponsors, the Lab’s faculty and Ph.D. students continuously generate new models, reports, and flight simulators in order to accomplish these goals.

We partner with the System Dynamics Society to provide a WPI sponsored online system dynamics program.

This site contains information about the Lab’s current and upcoming activities. It features faculty profiles, Ph.D. student profiles, alumni profiles, working papers, links to interesting Policy Flight Simulators, links to other sites in our field, and news reports.
