About Me


I am an Associate Professor of Sociology and am affiliated with the Translational Data Analytics Institute. My research interests are in Social Networks, Group Processes, Computational Modeling, and Stratification. In particular, I study the emergence of social processes, such as cooperation or segregation, in complex systems. Some of my other work examines status dynamics in small groups. I also develop methods, including in two recent book projects – Regression Inside Out and Social Science Applications of Regression for Limited Dependent Variables using R.

As of July 2019, I am co-Editor (along with Mike Vuolo) of Sociological Methodology.
