I am focused on understanding social phenomena that evolve over time and quantifying individual/group performance when direct information is scarce. My research program draws from my training in statistical and network-based methods, is a topical synthesis of sociology and epidemiology, and is focused on both population and individual-level data. This mixture leads to collaborations on a wide range of topics. My current interests and projects include:

Using EHR data to quantify physician diagnostic ability, model barriers to implementation, and improve change agent selection to include relative performance measures Structural determinants and evolution of school gun violence in the United States over time Identifying latent capabilities and prowess of covert organizations from observable actions Developing Bayesian methods to quantify and control for behavioral contagion in time series
