I study how behaviors and information spread through social ties. My current research focuses on two main areas. First, I look at how people learn about innovations and the features of social networks that lead to adoption or rejection of an innovation. I also study peer effects more broadly, focusing on how distinct mechanisms of peer influence interact differently with the structure of social interactions. Individuals' limited knowledge of the broader social network, and their cognitive limitations, play an important role in all of my work.

I am currently a doctoral student in the information systems program at the New York University Stern School of Business. I received my bachelor's degree in mathematics from Princeton University in 2009. Prior to beginning at Stern, I spent two years as an analyst at Cornerstone Research.
