I am a staff scientist and methodologist at the [[http://www.genome.gov National Human Genome Research Institute]]. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow of the [[http://www.nia.nih.gov/ National Institute on Aging]] at the [[http://www.rand.org RAND Corporation]] in beautiful Santa Monica, California. I hold a doctoral degree in sociology from the University of California, Irvine. My research interests include aging and the life course, social interaction, network dynamics, and health. My dissertation research focused on health and structural explanations of age differences in day-to-day social interaction. At Genome, my work is primarily focused on the network dynamics of health communication and social behavior within families challenged with heritable disease. In addition, I have a lively program of research in network science methodology.
I am an alumnus of Professor [[http://www.carterbutts.com Carter Butts's]] Networks, Computation, and Social Dynamics Lab ([[http://www.ncasd.org ncasd.org]]) where my work focused on organizational responses to disasters, improvisation in disaster response, and relational event modeling of social interaction. This lab research was supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research. I also taught urban demography as an adjunct lecturer at the University of Southern California. I have received several prestigious professional accolades including: the Matilda White Riley Early Stage Investigator honor from [[https://obssr.od.nih.gov/9th-matilda-white-riley-behavioral-and-social-sciences-day/esi-paper-competition/ OBSSR ]] for my paper with Laura Koehly titled //Inter-generational Contact from a Network Perspective // ; an NHGRI GREAT Award for mentorship; a best plain language poster from NHGRI (with my trainee Allie Rosen) ; a best paper award for //Age Differences in Daily Social Activities// by the American Sociological Association Section on Aging and the Life Course; selected as a finalist for the [[http://www.healthandsocietyscholars.org/ Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health and Society Scholars]] program; received an Honorable Mention Public Impact Fellowship for my dissertation research from the University of California - Irvine; and, awarded the [[http://www.socsci.uci.edu/node/1311 Order of Merit Award]] from the UCI School of Social Sciences for outstanding service to Graduate students as a health policy advocate.
