The Columbia Experimental Laboratory for Social Sciences (CELSS) is an interdisciplinary resource for Columbia researchers in Economics, Political Science, Sociology, SIPA, and the Business School, as well as the Barnard Economics department. Its goal is to facilitate experimental research in the social sciences, with a focus on computer-based experiments, whether physically located in CELSS’ lab, or web-based.

In line with the rest of Columbia University, CELSS' space is now physically closed because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

CELSS' Lab Manager (Silvio Ravaioli, celss-manager@columbia.edu), and Programming Consultant (Leo Goldman, leo.goldman@columbia.edu) can be contacted remotely.
