I am a postdoctoral research assistant working with Neave O'Clery as part of the PEAK urban interdisciplinary project. I am quite new to (and excited to be) working in social/economic networks, as my PhD work is more concerned with the modeling of condensed matter physics (I am working on a paper "Rigidity percolation in random rod packings" that should be submitted soon...)
Previously, I had the pleasure of being advised in my PhD by Peter J. Mucha and M. Gregory Forest. Other collaborators include: Dane Taylor, Feng "Bill" Shi, Theo J. Dingemans, Maruti Hegde, Daphne Klotsa, and Ryan Fox.
While at UNC, I designed the networks curriculum for the annual free summer camp Girls Talk Math. Currently, I am working to help organize the third annual Oxford Summer School on Economic Networks. I am also tutoring Hilary 2019 for Mathematics and Data Science for Development.
Between undergraduate/graduate schools, I worked in Nashville, TN as an educator with Teach for America.
Upcoming and ongoing things on my agenda:
February-March: Tutoring Mathematics and Data Science for Development in the mathematical institute
March: Presenting (lightening talk) an upcoming paper on rigidity percolation at Complenet '19 in Tarragona, Spain
April: Co-presenting an upcoming book chapter on industrial agglomeration at the AAG annual meeting session on cities and networks in Washington, DC
May: Presenting an upcoming paper on rigidity percolation at Statistical Physics of Complex Systems in Stockholm
June: The Oxford Summer School on Economic Networks (applications due March 15!)
July: Netmob 2019 at the mathematical institute
