Dr. Myers' principle research interests lie in the area of collective behavior and social movements. His current work focuses on racial rioting in the 1960's and 1970's, deterministic and stochastic models of diffusion for collective violence, mathematical models of collective action, media coverage of protests, demonstrations, and riots, and game theoretic analyses of small group negotiation.
