I study the structure and dynamics of social and information networks, with a particular emphasis on information diffusion, expertise sharing, and online communities.
I'm really looking forward to teaching a free online Coursera on Social Network Analysis this Sept.
Our paper on recipe recommendation using recipe networks was featured in Science News.
