In small groups, people follow high-performing leaders
Research led by NYU Tandon Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Maurizio Porfiri.
Researchers at the New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering have cracked the code on how leaders arise from small groups of people over time. The work is detailed in a study, "Social information and Spontaneous Emergence of Leaders in Human Groups," published in The Royal Society Interface. The team included Maurizio Porfiri, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and of biomedical engineering at NYU Tandon.
