I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at Duke University. I do research in the areas of social network analysis, economic sociology, organizations and management, and public health. My dissertation examines how the structure of competition among organizations influences the survival chances of organizations and the development of markets. My research also explores how social networks and household arrangements can shape disparities in financial and physical well-being. I employ a variety of conventional and innovative statistical methods to study these phenomena.
