I’m a Research Public Health Analyst at RTI International in the Center for Behavioral Health Epidemiology, Implementation, and Evaluation Research. I use social network analysis theories and methods to study adolescent mental health and health-risk behaviors. Some specific areas I’m working on now are friendship stability, bullying, and the impact of structural racism during adolescence on adult outcomes.

I received my PhD in Sociology from Duke University. During grad school I was a research assistant for the Duke Network Analysis Center and a doctoral student affiliate with the International Max Planck Research School for Population, Health, and Data Science (IMPRS-PHDS).
