Research Interests

I am a doctoral student in the sociology department at Washington State University. My interests are in social networks, health, life course/aging, statistics, and economic sociology.

My research uses network analysis and statistics to study an array of issues such as health outcomes of older adult spousal caregivers, corporate sponsorship of professional sports teams, academic hiring patterns, and antibiotic adoption among African pastoralists.
