Why are there stable cross-country differences in suicide rates? 

How can autism prevalence increase so rapidly? 

My research focuses on social networks and health, micro-macro links, and the diffusion of non-contagious conditions. I argue that networks are crucial to solving epidemiological puzzles.  

My research has appeared in American Journal of Sociology, Demography, Social Forces, International Journal of Epidemiology, and other journals. 

I teach courses on quantitative research methods and network analysis.
