Profile
Description: 

I study interpersonal social networks, and how they are related to other social phenomena. My research to date has looked at how the prehistorical emergence of network differences within societies led to the emergence of inherited social inequality, how adolescent networks and affiliations influence transitions into adulthood, how romantic couples meet, and how the network disruption of moving affects segregation.
