In his research, he couples experimental and field data from several Internet-based environments, such as open source software development, Wikipedia, and online poker, to uncover how psychological and cognitive traits shape our behavior, with a particular focus on online cooperation, peer production and decision making. At the Center, Jerome notably collaborates with Professor Yochai Benkler on the Cooperation project. He is also involved with the Mindsport Research Network, which he helped launch together with Professor Charles Nesson.
