Main research or teaching areas
- Sociological theory and method
- Social network analysis
- Quantitative methods
My ambition is to pursue theoretically informed empirical analyses of contemporary social issues. I rely heavily on survey-based data collection and quantitative methods, primarily applied to the study of social networks. My research interests span from methodological debates to analyses of network constraints and opportunities of organisations, firms, and individuals.
