Those interested in a general introduction to social networks can check out my course notes / presentations, which are linked from the online syllabus.
My research focuses on social networks in multiple contexts. These include friendships among adolescents, the correspondence between social networks and neighborhood, the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, and social relations on the Internet. I am very interested in extending network techniques to large-scale social networks (1000s of nodes), which includes developing efficient methods for sampling networks, and identifying how social networks change over time.

my research on social networks as well as links to other people doing exciting
work in this area.
