|Social Network Analysis
Most of my research involves analysis
of networks, intersecting with a variety of substantive areas,
team and small group research (1) (5) (7) (9); interest
group networks (8) (10) (17); social influence (2) (15); information
governance and policy diffusion (4) (6) (11) (13) (14)
(16); and the presidency (12). I am also increasingly intrigued
by the potential for using behavioral data on social interactions
to study networks (3).
