Research/Creative Interests

As a computational social scientist, I build simulations of human social systems and their dynamics. My current project is a model of community gardening and explores how organizer can most effectively help individuals start and sustain personal gardens.

Research/Creative Needs

I need help with conducting interviews with community organizers, collecting data, literature review, and revising our model and analyzing results from simulation runs.

Mentoring Style

  • Typically one-on-one
  • One-on-one or in small groups, depending on the project

Currently looking for a student to apply and work in these programs:

  • Any program/opportunity

I can mentor a student enrolled in 4998/4999 hours during these semesters:

  • Summer Session I 2024
  • Summer Session II 2024
  • Fall 2024
  • Email me to ask

Student Qualifications:

  • Computer science majors
  • Social science students
  • Environmental studies majors
  • Sociology majors
  • I am also particularly interested in working with and mentoring students from historically marginalized populations

A little bit more info:

While the computational model is the main component of my research, it needs to be well integrated with the applicable social science domain. Students from non-CS (or non-STEM) disciplines can be very helpful in this respect, and my ideal team would be highly interdisciplinary.

Interested? Please email me to set up a meeting.
