I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology at Columbia University. I study networks in time. I seek to understand how local contexts shape ways in which social networks form and social contagion takes place using agent-based modeling, causal inference, and survey experiment.
Currently, I study (1) the impact of increasing political polarization on core discussion networks [my dissertation], (2) the social origin of missing heritability for adolsecent friendship networks based on twin misclassification and confusability [with Dalton Conley], (3) segregation dynamics of racial/ethnic disparities in the transmission of Sexually Transmistted Diseases [with Kate Strully and Peter Bearman], (4) the role of ethnic segregation in classrooms in adolescents’ ethnic boundary making process [with Dohoon Lee], (5) the robust structure of hidden terrorist networks that arises from solving the secrecy/efficiency trade-off [with Eun Kyong Shin and Peter Bearman].
At Columbia University, I am affiliated as a graduate fellow at the Center on Organizational Innovation (COI) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics (INCITE) where I co-organize the Networks and Time seminar series with Peter Bearman.
