About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Florida Atlantic University. I completed my doctorate in Sociology at Indiana University, where I also obtained an MS in Applied Statistics. My research interests include social networks, aging, disability, mental health, culture, and quantitative methods.

I recently presented my research on social networks and cognitive impairment among older adults at the 2018 Duke Social Networks & Health Workshop. A video of that presentation is available on YouTube, and embedded below. My work has been published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Advances in Medical Sociology, Network Science, and several community health journals. You can read more about my current research here.

I am currently a member of the FAU Biostatistics Collaborative Core.
