Doug Luke

Douglas Luke is a leading researcher in the areas of public health policy, systems science and tobacco control. Luke directs work focused primarily on the evaluation, dissemination and implementation of evidence-based public health policies.

Over the past decade, Luke has used systems science methods, especially social network analysis and agent-based modeling, to address important public health problems. He published the first review papers on network analysis in public health in 2007, and on systems science methods in public health in 2012. He has written books on multilevel modeling and network analysis. Under Luke’s leadership, the Center for Public Health Systems Science has used network analysis to study diffusion of scientific innovations, to model the formation of organizational collaborations, and to study the relationship of mentoring to future scientific collaboration.

In addition to his appointment at the Brown School, Luke is a member of the Institute for Public Health, the director of evaluation for the Institute of Clinical and Translational Science and a founding member of the Washington University Network of Dissemination and Implementation Researchers. In addition, he served on an Institute of Medicine panel that produced a national report on the use of agent-based modeling for tobacco regulatory science.
