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 online.

CELSS' Lab Manager (Jeffrey Guo, [email protected]), and Programming Consultant (Victoria Geh, v[email protected]) can be contacted remotely. Victoria is proficient in oTree/Python and can help you with the programming and testing of new experiments.
