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.
I am interested in substantive questions related to the future of work and social connection: How do individuals navigate professions that occur largely outside of formal organizations? How do groups coordinate their behavior in the absence of a leader or leviathan? How can we identify the patterns of social interaction that define larger communities of workers and citizens? Theoretically, I am interested in emergent social order and how individuals are shaped by their position in larger social networks.
In my work I draw on large behavioral data sets constructed from online and administrative sources. My published and on-going research draws on data from a wide range of social phenomena: from hockey fights to film collaborations to online social networks, as well as theoretically-grounded simulations 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.
