I am an Assistant Professor in the Management of Organizations group at the Haas School of Business at the University of California Berkeley. Prior to joining Haas I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from Columbia University.

My research interests include Economic Sociology, Social Network Analysis, and Causal Inference. My work examines how social networks form, if and why they persist, and how social networks shape the beliefs and actions of the actors embedded in them. I study these questions in several empirical settings: health care delivery, executive compensation benchmarking, and large professional networking events.
