Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Social psychology, social networks, adolescence, violence and delinquency

Current Projects

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.
