About Us

Who We Are

We are a group of Princeton graduate students and postdocs who have organized to understand what we, as scientists and scholars, can do to tackle the societal issues we face today and promote democratic participation and evidence-based policy-making. We’ve formed task forces on a wide range of issues including climate change, nuclear nonproliferation, and immigration. We seek to train and inform ourselves through dedicated workshops, weekly discussion and joint research.

As Citizen Scientists, we are a community dedicated to the values of equity, human rights, international cooperation, and access to knowledge. We believe in vibrant democratic institutions and the public’s right to be informed in making collective choices for its future. We embrace people of all ethnicities, religions, nationalities, genders, and identities, and are committed to defend the free and vigorous exchange of ideas.
