I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Sociology at Cornell University and a member of the Social Dynamics Laboratory. I anticipate completing my Ph.D. in May 2019.
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 my time at Cornell, 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.
