I’m an assistant professor of Sociology and Criminology & Criminal Justice at Northeastern University. I'm also core faculty at the NULab for Text, Maps, and Networks and a faculty affiliate at the Network Science Institute. I received my PhD in Sociology and Demography with a minor in Social Data Analytics from Pennsylvania State University.
My research applies a social networks perspective to disentangle how our connections both reproduce and challenge systems of social inequality. I'm interested in developing computational methodologies that can better address these issues and applying these methods to study social phenomena such as immigration, delinquency, substance use, and bullying. My work has been published or is forthcoming in Demography, Social Networks, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, Social Psychology Quarterly, Sociology of Education, and American Journal of Sociology.
