Social psychology, social networks, adolescence, violence and delinquency
My research uses social network analysis to examine the emergence of conflict, aggression, and other social problems. Current projects include a longitudinal study of the interplay of adolescent romantic relationships, friendships, and aggression, and a semantic network analysis of cyberbullying. I am also investigating how collaboration networks and differences in prestige influence the emergence of scientific disputes among physicists.
