I am a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Program in Quantitative Social Science and Department of Sociology at Dartmouth College. I completed my Ph.D. in Sociology at Cornell University in 2019, where I was a member of the Social Dynamics Laboratory.
My research examines social interaction though the lenses of structure - who has the opportunity to interact with whom and what can be discerned from the mathematical patterns of interactions, influence - how interactions shape individuals and motivate future action, and order - how can interactions stabilize and govern groups, organizations, and societies.
In my work I draw on large behavioral data sets constructed from online sources, a variety of network analysis techniques, and theory-driven simulations and models of social behavior.
Before beginning my graduate studies, I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Yale University in 2010, and then worked as a Business Analyst and Data Scientist for Wayfair.com from 2010-13.
