Welcome! I’m a sociologist who is broadly interested in the social and political factors that shape the global flows of knowledge, as well as the social and political ramifications of the globalization of science. I apply social network analysis, computational linguistics, and traditional social science approaches to these foci. I use data from the most extensive repositories of scientific publications, Reuter’s Web of Science, and the most comprehensive repositories of all dissertations from North American universities, ProQuest’s UMI dissertation database.

I am an assistant professor at the City University of New York, Queens College’s Department of Sociology. Previously, I was a lecturer and data science postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley’s School of Information. I received my Ph.D. in 2016 from Stanford University.
