I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences. I received my Ph.D. in Behavior and Brain Sciences from the University of Georgia (2015), and I recently completed my postdoctoral training at Brown University (2017). My primary research areas are: 1) the theory and application of social network analysis, 2) social influence and social selection on alcohol use, and 3) developmental transitions among emerging adults.
