The Social Interactions, Groups, and Inequality Lab (SIGIL) is a sociology research lab at Dartmouth College, headed by Kimberly B. Rogers. We conduct research on identity, behavior, and emotions in social interactions and small groups through computational modeling and laboratory research. We're interested in understanding how groups form, reach decisions, work toward collective goals, and affect the well-being of their members.
