A joint venture between the University of Chicago’s Biological Sciences Division and the Division of the Social Sciences, the TMW Center is truly an interdisciplinary research institute. Dr. Dana Suskind and Dr. John List co-founded the TMW Center in 2017. They currently serve as Co-Directors, managing an interdisciplinary team of economists, psychologists, technologists, curriculum developers, and other experts.
We have built a highly qualified and committed team to execute our Center’s bold and multi-faceted approach to achieving our mission. Leveraging our team’s individual and collective strengths, we engage families, harness technology, leverage behavioral economics, and work collaboratively across systems. Our team’s unique pairing of economic science and early childhood development science allows us to develop scalable models that reach more than one community at a time, and ultimately, to inform public policy nationally.
