About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Axelrod, Robert
Location University of Michigan
Primary Field Social and Political Sciences
 Election Citation
Axelrod has drawn from game theory a number of brilliant insights. His formal theory of conflict of interest has set a major research agenda in political institutions and behavior. His more recent work on the iterated prisoner's dilemma reveals one cooperative strategy that is empirically dominant, clarifying a persistent riddle in evolutionary biology.
 Research Interests
My interests are in game theory; international security affairs; evolutionary biology; and artificial intelligence.
