Spiro Maroulis is an Assistant Professor at the School of Public Affairs, and the Associate Director for Policy Informatics at the ASU Decision Theater. His research addresses problems involved with understanding the relationship between individual and collective behavior, particularly in the context of understanding why well-intentioned public policies so often provoke resistance and unanticipated responses by the system they are trying to improve. This includes investigating innovation implementation and change inside organizations, as well as modeling the emergence and evolution of markets and institutions. He received his B.S.E from Duke University, M.P.P. from Harvard University, and Ph.D. from Northwestern University.
