ABOUT ME

 

I'm an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Data Science at Purdue University, with lots of other connections that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of my research. Before coming to Purdue, I did my PhD at the University of Colorado Boulder and my postdoc at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. My main research interest is in sociogenomics, which lies at the intersection of sociology, demography, and statistical & computational genetics. I am interested in how social forces and environments interact with genetics (gene-by-environment interactions). Using recent advances in genetic data collection and methodological developments in statistical genetics, I leverage large-scale genetic data to explore how sociological outcomes  change across context, across time, and across outcome measurement. I am also deeply dedicated to clearly and sensitively communicating the findings from my work in an ethically-engaged and community-based fashion. My work outside of social science genetics focuses on population health, health disparities, and quasi-experimental designs and methodologies. ​
