I received my PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, where my research focused on Computational Social Science as part of the Network Dynamics Group with Damon Centola.


My research sits at the intersection of physics, computer science, and the social sciences. I am interested in how individual actions give rise to collective phenomena in large populations. Applications include the complex interplay of social forces that produce collective intelligence, group problem-solving, and consensus formation in human social systems.

To understand the dynamics of such systems, I rely on agent-based models to gain theoretical traction on a social behavior. Then, I test these ideas using online experiments to see if these theories hold true.

Data Science

I am currently a data scientist at Cooper Health, where I implement predictive models and advanced analytics to help drive down the cost of health coverage and deliver treatment to the sickest patients.

I have several data science projects using machine learning, and I was a fellow with Insight Data Science. See my Data Science Projects for more information.
