I am a Graduate Research Assistant and PhD candidate at George Mason University's Center for Social Complexity and am working on a Computational Social Science PhD in the Computational and Data Sciences Department. My research interests are currently focused on how social networks impact cultural norms, behavior and cognition and how social networks are used for collective action.

In previous work, I supported research programs in the areas of training, decision-making and basic research in the social sciences at the Office of Naval Research. I hold a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of Maryland, University College, and a Bachelors in International Relations from the University of Virginia.
