Platas, an assistant professor of political science at New York University Abu Dhabi; and Jonathan Rodden, a professor of political science at Stanford University, authored the paper, "It Takes a Village: Peer Effects and Externalities in Technology Adoption.” The paper offers a novel theoretical development linking together two strands of research: how networks shape our behavior, and the degree to which technology can improve government outcomes and civic engagement.
