James H. Fowler is a Professor in the School of Medicine and the Division of Social Sciences at the University of California, San Diego. He was recently named a Fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and one of Foreign Policy's Top 100 Global Thinkers.
James's work lies at the intersection of the natural and social sciences. His primary areas of research are social networks, behavioral economics, evolutionary game theory, political participation, cooperation, and genoplitics (the study of the genetic basis of political behavior).
James has been interviewed by Stephen Colbert and was named "most original thinker" of the year by The McLaughlin Group. His research on genopolitics with Chris Dawes has been featured in New York Times Magazine's Year in Ideas, and his research on social networks with Nicholas Christakis has been featured in Time's Year in Medicine (twice), and in Harvard Business Review's Breakthrough Business Ideas.
Science magazine dubbed Christakis and Fowler the "dynamic duo" (though James thinks Nicholas makes a better Adam West). Together they have written a book on social networks for a general audience called Connected. Winner of aBooks for a Better Life Award, it has been translated into twenty languages, named an Editor’s Choice by the New York Times Book Review, and featured in Wired, Oprah's Reading Guide, Business Week's Best Books of the Year, GOOD's 15 Books You Must Read, and a cover story in New York Times Magazine.
